JB weld. save some money buy some beer and let it set up. Or like some others have said you could try get some one to weld it and machine it to even out the surface.

Yeah the intake casts are pretty darn clean, with so much surface area in the crack JB wouldnt be a bad fix really, then u could clean it up pretty well.
