You should definitely be able to do it in a day. NJ isn't much better for salt and rusted bolts. The one thing that's a PITA about it is that on our cars, the driveshaft goes over top of the gas tank, so make sure the tank is almost empty, then you can unbolt the straps and just let the tank hang down, and that will give you enough room to get the driveshaft out. Oh, also use a long extension with a swivel socket going in from the front to get to the top bolt for the starter. Other than that, everything about the swap is pretty straightforward.
