Not too bad if you have small hands.I havnt done them on a van,may be easier because the dog house comes off.Probobly will not be easier because that would be too easy.I think all you need is a 1/4 " ratcet with some extensions,a 1/4 " swival and 8mm,10mm sockets. You have to unplug the injectors to get some coils out.I would put some fresh spark plugs in there while your at it,anti seize them and make sure they are tight.These motors are known for blowing spark plugs out and taking the threads with them.
Put some dieleletric grease on the coils when you install them to keep moisture out.
Might want to look at your exaust manifold bolts also as they are probobly rusted to the point of breaking soon.
