09 Outlook Valve cover replacement

So I changed my plugs today and noticed oil on the threads of 2 and 6. Figure I need new Valve cover and plug gaskets and just wondering if anyone has done this and how long it takes.

I have changed 2 of the coils and also the plugs so I am pretty familiar with removing the air intake manifold. How hard is it to get that back valve cover off? Had everything put back together already when I started looking into reasons for oil on the plug threads so didn't get a chance to locate the bolts on the back bank. The back bank is fine as far as gaskets, but I want to do it anyway if I am replacing the front one.

Took me right at an hour to change out all the plugs today. Figure maybe another hour or two if I am going deeper and doing the valve cover gaskets?
