    How hard is it to take off the valve cover and replace the gasket. Is there required torque specs to do so? And is this hard to do?

    taking it off is not a hard thing to do nor putting it back on. But when putting it back on it is a very good idea to torque to specs and within the required sequence. As these valve cover gaskets are known to leak when reinstalling a new one use a little atv on the gasket and torque the specs / sequence and you'll be good to go.
