It's a big job since you have to drop the fuel tank, especially with the engine still in the car. Unless you are an experienced mechanic, a weekend may not be enough time. A few tips:
1) Have the correct flare wrenches for disconnecting the fuel line. You don't want to screw up this fitting.
2) The big flexible hose connecting the fill pipe to the tank may crack during the removal process. New ones are still available. Best to have one on hand if you are in a hurry.
3) Coolant pipes will need to be removed to drop the tank, or at least disconnected in back, dropped down and moved aside. So that means draining the coolant.

One of the hardest jobs to do on a MR2 in my opinion especially if the turbo model. Don't attempt unless you are sure it is a faulty fuel pump and know what you are doing with proper tools, help , etc.
