When I was looking at doing something similar with my former TriStar, my research came up with a gain of maybe 60hp max with the heads/intake/cam combo. I was hoping to go from the stock 240hp to...

I've had several auto engines with aluminum intakes and never had them corrode, even after 25 years. Not sure if marine engines would be any different.

Short answer, yes, it can be fixed. Hard to tell from the pic but it doesn't look that bad. Cost, likely in the $150 - 200 range, depending on the extent.

Dunno off-hand.
My 1991 TriStar was Glacier White. Not sure what whites MC used on the ProStars.
