Need to have a tall deck intake machined down to fit standard height. Not sure if possible but would hate to have to buy a new one as this is fully polished already and was a great buy. The current flange is over 1/2" thick so I think it can afford to me machined and still structural.

When you get told the price, you may just want to sell that one and buy a std deck.
That's what I am thinking may happen. New looks to be about $700 plus tax and shipping and then need it polished.

You didn't provide a good enough photo of the intake, but I would argue that one of the polished, imported intakes for less than $300 will work well enough that you would not ever feel the difference. What manifold is that for $700?

Holley Multiport for fuel injection. Part # 9901-204. The standard deck version non polished on Jegs is $633. Open to suggestions if you may have 1?

Saw that one yesterday. Glad you think it may work. Going to order tomorrow and worst case they have 30 dat return policy. Thanks for input
Does your throttle body have the smaller 4150 style flange? You could still run an adapter if it fits under your hatch.

I will need to figure this out. Here are some pictures of throttle body. Just a heads up I am only mocking up everything for proper fitment. Once all mocked up it will go back to Havasu to my mechanic Chris at Flattops Marine for final install. Thanks for all your input

Update. Ordered the offbrand intake. Looks nice but the fit and finish are junk. Holes don't align right. Distributor would need a 1/4" spacer to sit right. I returned it and bought the Holley. I will test fit it and then begin process of polishing it. Fingers crossed this works out better. Here is what isnin the way.
