its not a difficult or complicated job. It does take time.

You do not want to scratch the surface the existing pan mates to. It can be a little cumbersome to get the existing pan starting to pry off. Cumbersome again when removing the old gasket - take your time to remove all the old material.

I definitely recommend the BOE gasket although I haven't had a chance to use it. Likely much more foolproof assuming a clean mating surface.

As for the bolts, I don't think any pan has you drill out the old fasteners so the only risk you have is ruining one while removing the old pan... so plan on reusing the fasteners you have. Edit - JFH is right, mine must have come with longer bolts as I dont remember having to purchase anything.

Also, your existing fumoto will not transfer over to the new pan.
