Should be easy like any other starter. Disconnect the battery,remove the cables from the terminals on the starter, two starter bolts and remove and replace in reverse order.

Sounds easy on paper, but space is limited...

so glad I have an LT1. It's not that easy, but it's probably easier than what you're doing and definitely easier than replacing the cuda's starter...
