it depends on what u got to use? ie if u have a hoist it will take u s**t less time than if u dont, and a compressor and a rattle gun would save a bit of time too...
about the hardest bit i thought was getting the starter motor out... starter motor isnt hard but it takes a bit of installing extra bends in your arm...

I've had to replace my starter twice - original failed which I replaced with "yair, she's a good one mate" second hand one - then had to replace THAT one about a week later with a new one - and believe it or not, I actually remove the whole BBM for access - much easier in the long run IMO (I'm happier undoing 120 easy things than 2 really difficult ones).
