YOur choice but consider that if you simply cover it up, which is likely what you are going to do, that the next time the crack appears it will be bigger as it will grow. Do it right now and you won;t be redoing later.
If it comes back it may not do it at a convenient time.

Caltexflanc has a serious point.


If you go with the JB then at least use a couple layers of 6 oz cloth in the repair , working the JB right in like you would with any resin.

Also take a good look at the support. Maybe the exhaust hose is hanging from the wye which is what started the crack. Pieces like this are not meant to be structural. Do a good repair and check the support. Add a hanger or two to take any load/weight off.
