Need to Replace My Valve Cover & Plenum Gaskets

Per subject title, I need to replace the valve cover and plenum gaskets on my 2007 V6 2WD 4runner. Well, just the one valve cover gasket, which has some seepage, but may as well take care of the other two items at the same time.

I could handle the passenger side on my own, I think, but the driver's side appears to be a little more involved and I can't find any write-ups with sufficient detail about all the steps involved to allow me to feel comfortable enough to take on.

So I was hoping for some insight or experience as to about how much should this cost me for labor? Gaskets are inexpensive, so not really a cost issue for me.

Thanks...

Labor for just drivers side (since youre doing passenger)? This is usually a 3-5hr job depending on the shop.

Take photos, get baggies and write where bolts go.there are just a few vacuum hoses and brackets for the upper air box to get out of the way.

It isn't too difficult.

While I have valve covers and plenum off, and certain areas exposed, are there any other items I should be inspecting or even replacing while I am there?
