Default AC Compressor swap..

Since mine crapped on me a week or so ago. I plan on replacing it myself.
Any thoughts on how hard this is. Most say its a PITA! but I wont have a shop do it just because I dont want to pay someone.
I am not the most mechanically inclined but with a manual and a friend or 2 I figured it could be done in a few hours?

It happened at VA Speed open house. It was not blowing cold air on the way there but I have never had it charged. The noise it made ED said the compressor was shot. But could it but the clutch assembly is shot? I will get a video of the noise tomorrow. Because it didnt make the rattling noise on the way there.
