    To replace the OEM inlet with another OEM inlet the intake manifold has to be removed. If replacing with an aftermarket silicone one you can wrestle the replacement in without having to remove it; all the knibs/knobs etc... can be hacked off the OEM inlet before removing it so you can pull it from under the manifold. $700 is on the high side for labour however.

    It is kind of a tedious job to replace the pipe (stock)... remove the intake, depressurizing the fuel lines, re-pressurizing and checking levels, etc.

    The labor costs are a bit steep but I think I would almost rather have it fixed at a dealership. I've only had the car for one week after running into problems. I'd like to be sure that the job is done right and this way they can check the car for potential other problems. Plus, the '04 had an open recall that I am getting taken care of.
