It's super easy to replace yourself. Just replace it yourself.

i messed with the coolant 3x on the stock setup and each time took me 3 burp cycles to get all the air out.

agreed that a water pump on these cars really isnt a big deal. Breaking the bolts loose on the pulley to get it out of the way can be kind of a pita but nothing a strap wrench or maybe even a small impact cant handle.
