I don't have specific info on your car. However on an older car, time to repair changes dramatically if it lived in the salt / rust belt.

I think it would be doable in a weekend. I did a whole 5 speed swap in a W124 in a week so I would imagine just dropping the transmission for the clutch would be super simple.

For a garage with a lift and a transmission jack about half a day.
