Default silencer got a crack

hi guys, i have an OHC and recently on a journey i happened to get down the road when a mad lorry driver was coming straight towards me without getting down the road a bit, as it was a single lane road, and in this there was some collision under body which i could hear. and i stoped and saw underbody, the pipe from the engine and some where near the rear door was bent down and had developed a crack and the car now sounds wierd.so wat do u suggest? shud i need to change the complete set up from the engine or just will be fine if welding is done.
waiting for replies.bye

You should get it checked from the silencer repair shop, they will be able to tell you if a repair will suffice, else you go ahead and change the pipe.

get it inspected, if its a small dent and tear weld it or better get it replaced. while inspecting the pipe ask the workshop to just ensure rest is all well down there

That is correct, if you repair a rather bigger gash then chances are that it will open up again sooner or later, which is not cool.
