Check out this page, it looks pretty complete. Still, it's always good to review everything thoroughly before tackling a job. hope this helps!

More than 1 hour!!! It has taken about 5 total to get the thing out. The Alternator bracket must come out also. the air manifold prevents removal straight up and out. Looks like it will be just as fun on reassembly. I say two days to finish this job.
