I did this last night, the coil and the wires. It took me about an hour because I wanted to make sure I was careful, and didn't want to bend the new wires too much. Everything went well, and problem was cured. I did end up removing the flexible part of the air inlet for better access, but that was no big deal since the air box had to come out anyway to reach the plugs. One thing I did struggle with a little was the plastic wire clip that plugs into the coil. There is not much slack on that wire, so you have to work on it while the coil is partially down under the manifold. I had a hard time getting the clip off. I eventually carefully pried it off little by little with a flathead screwdriver, making sure I didn't break it. When putting it back on the new one, it was also a pain, and never really snapped. I'm not sure it's locked on, but I don't think it's going anywhere. I guess all the heat from the engine does a number on it.
