Take it from somebody that has done it! They say 8 hours, but with basic skills (me), it takes a good 10-14 hours to complete the job. It's well worth it though!

I say do it, especially if it is a bolt-on like that; you don't need to do anything more then in the instructions, you get everything, and you save money by doing it yourself. Best of all though, you get to work on your car, and learn about it. Thats the most inportant thing, regardless of whether its 1hp or 100hp. You'd be amazed at how much you can learn. Give yourself a weekend, read the instructions before to the point where you understand them, and go for it. Start on a Friday, and by Sunday you'll be a different car owner (with a better car).
