You will see a difference in over all performance with a tuned pipe. Just about any brand will be a big improvement over the stock smarttech muffler. Just be sure to get one for a .15 size engine. (I wouldn't spend a whole lot of money to get top of the line, just get a good priced pipe.)

If it's leaking at the coupler, go to the LHS and buy a new coupler. If the muffler itself is leaking, throw it away instead of wasting materials and time on it.

J.B. WELD is an epoxy type material that woeks great on that type of thing. Local hardware store should have it, cheap too.
