Not bad at all... had to do that on my WR way back when the turbo started blowing oil.

If your car is stock I would recomment taking off the alternator, intercooler and all it's plumbing, oil cooler, CIS distributor...
This way you'll have nice access to the item...

Downpipe will have to be moved back and for that you have to undo the wastegate corrigated pipe.  Other than that not much else to it..

I can send you some pics of my swap if you wish.
