Cam Change

I'm going to be changing out the cams in my 930. I'm dropping the engine and transmission for the sake of simplicity and perform the work on a dolly. The engine only has about 6K miles since I rebuilt it, so it doesn't need anything other than the cams. My question is; Can you think of anything I'm missing in terms of what has to be removed to perform cam swap?
1. Remove turbo and IC/tubing and exhaust system.
2. Remove oil fed tensioner lines.
3. Remove turbo sump pump/lines.
4. Remove engine tin.
5. Remove engine console.
6. Remove chain covers.
7. Remove valve covers.

Of course, there's the rocker arms, cam seals and gaskets.

Also, can the camshaft spray bars be removed from the rear of engine? By rear I mean from the pulley end of the engine versus the flywheel end. I want to clean them out "while I'm in there".
