Very straight forward, only took 3 hrs for everything.  Much of this was because I had a straight fitting coming out of the firewall, and to not be rubbing on the engine mount, you must have a 45 deg one.  I had replaced the one that came in the kit with a steel one, and had missed the 45 deg.

Also my kit came with a 90 deg fitting into the engine fuel pump.  The fuel line worked with this fitting with a slightly different routing than the kit called for.  Kit called for a straight fitting into the fuel pump.  It did take the line downward closer to the exhaust than a straight fitting would take it.  So I ordered a straight fitting like the manual called for, and am happier with the routing and distance from the exhaust.
Fuel line referenced above is the one going from firewall to fuel pump.  This has the straight fitting on it.

The fuel line supplied that goes from the fuel pump to the firewall manifold for the fuel pressure sensor was in my opinion about 3 inches too long, and not fire sleaved.  I ordered a new one from Bonico that was firesleaved and 12" from seat to seat ($30).  Looks much better.
