Nothing that I know of will work other than putting the headers back on, or not driving that car for the time being.

When in a similar situation, I just bolted up a flange to the mani, flange to the DP and then welded in some exhaust tubing between them. Worked fine while the turbo was getting rebuilt.

No. Why would I? Most of the time I drove it with the turbo intalled I wasn't in boost...
