It is a bit involved, buy it sounds more complex than it is. Although I definitely would change 5 valve cover gaskets than one fuel filter. I did it myself in about two hours (had trouble removing the cap access to the tank) but once in there took 30 minutes to remove the old filter and put everything back together.
If you are not comfortable sticking your hands in dark, tight spaces and in contact with gasoline and gasoline smell, definitely have it done for that price! If I had to do it again I definitely had it done.
