Depends on your level of experience, quality of your tools and whether or not you have any frozen head bolts. The valve assembly and head come off as one unit on those. To clear the wires, emmision controls ect off of the top of the valve cover 30 minutes. remove valve cover 5 minutes (too scrape off excess gasket material. to remove exhaust manifold from side of head, (assuming no broken/stuck/stripped bolts 15 minutes with good hydraulic tools. To remove head (assuming all goes well and hydraulic tools, 15 minutes. To reassemble, double all times as surfaces need to be prepped and gaskets applied and proper torque on all bolts. It's an afternoon job if you ahve everything you need and nothing goes wrong. Typically add at least two or three hours of drilling and cursing to a head gasket replacement. and a trip for new drill bits and a tap (not beer) for the new hole you drilled.
