Very easy. 4 bolts. Disconnect the fuel line, throttle linkage, emissions stuff, cruise control, whatever. If you need to, take a picture before you take it off so you can remember where everything goes.

Since you're a first timer it would probably be a good idea to mark every vacuum line. Other than that you'll need to use 2 wrenches on the fuel inlet for the carb to avoid twisting the line like cadillacdeville was saying. The rest is pretty straightforward, since you're not trying to rebuild it yourself (what a PITA that is.)

I have owned 2 caddys with the 1980 368, one carburated and one fuel injected. Both motors were excellent. They can be tuned to give the same power and reliability as a chev 350.
