easy if its auto, difficult if its manual! Well, in the cases I've done. I'm sure every car is different, trucks are the easiest-

What sort of clearance? What kind of car? The more room you have the easier it will be. You are probably looking at a couple hours. You'll probably have to drop the starter and pull off a few accessories unless you can lift the car and drop them rather than lift them out of the engine bay.

You should get an increase across the entire rpm range, more in the low rpm torque than anything.

Bring extra wrenches, they tend to grow wings when something doesn't fit just right.
