If you have a torn intake tube elbow (very common), then it's repairable with common tools and the part costs about $12. Oil filter housing gasket is a bit more involved, and you can search for that repair here.

Generally, we don't know how much repairs are at a dealership or indy mechanic, as we are mostly DIY hounds! Many things on these cars are insanely easy to fix.
