It's an all nuts and bolts swap, well documented.
If he has tools and can follow instructions he can do it.
Yes, it is all nuts and bolts. If it is the same engine, but he is not putting the same engine in. I never said he can't, I just said maybe he should not do it.

If it is his main ride, NO. Project yes! How will he ever learn if he does not try? I just think he should read up before tearing out.

And what else is harder then changing an engine? Well there was this one time I did a turbine swap... The only thing harder is performance building in the engine.
