Man its a pain
1/To do it you must remove the head
2/you need new lifters
3/head gasket/rocker cover gasket
4/performance timing sprocket /chain
5/remove harmonic balancer
6/ I dont remember but i think you remove the water pump.
7/remove the radiator
8/lower the bumper bar
9/remove fan belts.
10/ Remove timing case
11/ degree wheel.
12/new harmonic balancer may be needed too.
13/maybe hardened pushrods
14/valvesprings collets retainers.high lift cam..shims

you might as well as pull it out and do it in your garage

This is from what i remember
