Not too much harder then doing the lower intake gasket. The front head is quite simple but the rear head gets a little annoying to work on, The head gasket set is around $200 though, and I would really recommend taking the heads to a machine shop if your unsure of how to check springs, valves, valve seats and the surface for warping. Head gaskets can become a pretty pricey job, but Im sure you would be able to do the labor yourself.
