It depends on what you're replacing. If its just a leak in a small area, and you have access, then you could cut out the damaged section with a snap cutter(easily obtained from plumbing store for rent) and replace with pvc and a couple rubber boot connectors. The snap cutter(chain cutter) can cut the damaged section out in seconds. Be careful as cast iron pipe is heavy and if not properly supported before cutting, could crash down and do some real damage.
