Hardest part is getting the cruise control cable back on really.
I haven't seen a guide for it, but I'm sure you can find Plenum/TB install guides on AM.
It won't be for the same product but it will be the same process.
Go luck and post some pics when your done.

PS.
If it helps, take pictures when removing things and mark the bolts, then u can reverse install off your phone/camera.

Lol it's very straight forward guys

ALL you have to do is put on everything you took off the old plenum, and put it on the new plenum .. It's the same exact places.

Will be easy with power drills and extensions , etc.

For you may be but if you never have done it, it is not that simple

OP you shouldn't have a problem with this one. Its easy and takes 10 min-1 hour depending how fast you work and if you've done it before. Just roll up your sleeves bud, you'll figure it out.

If you can use basic hand tools you can do it. You carefully disconnect everything from it, removing the intake tube from the TB, disconnecting all the TB linkages, removing the TB and just make sure everything is unhooked. Feel around if you aren't sure, use the new plenum to see if anything should be attached where you haven't checked yet. Then just unbolt it and re-install it in the reverse order you removed it. Take pics if you have to, anything to help.

In all honesty there is not too much you can't do on these cars without a basic set of tools.

I may be late posting to this thread. I did a full PI Swap myself and my hands are paralyzed. I need to fiddle with everything possible to avoid atrophy (flatten out muscles due to non use). My brother was like "Yo, this is far over our heads). LOL... I only needed him to do anything over 4 lbs for me. He was super impressed that I knew exactly what to do (thanks to M.E.) and now my family asks me for car advice installing the intake, TB, fuel rails/injectors, egr, properly connecting vacuum lines, inspecting/plugging in all the electrical connectors... Was all a breeze . Like putting the square block thru the square hole and the triangle block thru the triangle hole.. I didn't think to clean the Idle Air Control or TB so last week my idle was real rough. It took me 5 minutes to install a new IAC and wipe out my TB. It runs like it has 5,000 miles on it. Make sure your IAC is fairly new and keep that TB clean. Or you'll be contantly checking your plugs, wires and coils thinking they're faulty because that what it feels like. Thirteen 8mm bolts and some connecting lines on my plenum/TB. Easiest job ever Have fun with your new mods
