Its the big plastic thing on top of your motor (once you take the engine cover off, obviously)

Its what takes the air from your intake and puts it into the motor (In very simple terms)

Is it something that can be replaced easily, or better for a professional to do?
Also what goes wrong with them, and what would be the best replacement as far as performance and cost go?

All depends on how mechanically inclined you are. It has been replaced by several members here.

And before I forget, nice looking car you've got there
