Hi there,
It's the equivalent of a timing belt change, plus water pump. Engine mount, belts & timing belt covers off, Right hand wheel & inner guard insert off to access crankshaft pulley bolt to align engine at top dead centre. If you're handy & understand how timing belts need to be aligned, you should be Ok if equipped with a workshop manual to provide detail. No special tools required.
It's 4 to 5 hour job for the professionals, to give you some idea of time involved..
I hope this helps!
