it is rather easy but you do have to try and get a lot of rusted bolts apart and know how to check the heads for cracks and flatness. it will take 2 days to do unless you really give it your all. the wiring harness will come completly out so if that scares you and you don;t know how to get broken bolt out then you should find help

good luck, I have 6 broken or rusted bolt and a bad valve that took 3 days to get in when I did my last 98 3.0
