Its not hard at all.
If you have dpne things like brakes such its cake.
Just tag anything you have to move out of the way...plug wires...connections...and such.
Just look up the torque on them so you dont bend them.
Maybe a haynes or chilton guide would be helpful as well.

Not hard, just time consuming, especially if you've never done it before. A pro could do it in around 2-3 hours, first timers, expect around 5.

Drivers side is easy, only thing in the way is the coil pack.
Passenger side is a little harder to get to as you have to remove the intake tube and throttle body, and then you still have to wiggle it out carefully from under the upper intake
