The first step is to doubt your ability to do it so that caution lets you to prepare thoroughly. Just read the instructions here until you understand them, have all the tools ready, and you should be fine. $900 isn't horrible if it's the out the door price including all fluids, disposal fees, tax, etc. The water pump should also be changed so you should drain/refill the coolant while you're in there. Make sure the price includes that too and not just the TB change.

The advantage of DIY is that you know everything was done correctly. For example, the motor mount bolts are often not replaced which may cause the engine mount to strip and let the engine fall.
