I think what he was saying that the cost of the intake, the cost of the elbow adapter and the cost of the new strut tower brace plus any applicable tax, shipping and handling came to about $700, not that the intake by itself was $700 (unless I read it wrong).
I love the Edelbrock intake.....don't get me wrong. But if you are a little constrained economically, then be smart. Don't over spend in a couple of areas and then have something else go out on your car and not have the money to fix it and have it sitting in a garage collecting dust.
Look in the tech area at the flow numbers on the various intakes, look at the prices, look in your pocketbook and go from there.
