Default intake manifold gasket replacement

How much time does it really take to do the lower intake manifold gasket? Is it a difficult job?

I'm asking because my 04 turbo-lite has been idling rough off and on and throwing misfire codes also. When we shot carb cleaner at the intake the idle smoothed out, so I'm sure that that gasket is at least part of the issue.

My brother in law ended up doing this for me. The car had been running a little rough, but it started whistling while my wife was out of town visiting family. We paid him fairly and still saved a bunch of money over having a 'real' mechanic do it.
