Hardest part is removing the upper intake to get the rear cover off, and none of it is really that difficult. Make sure you get a new gasket for the EGR valve at the intake, as you'll have to either undo the EGR tube, or remove the valve. Personally, i usually find it easier to unbolt the valve rather than remove the tube, as it requires a large wrench, and is often pretty rusted in.
