Please help me prepare!

I am going to attempt my own cam/head swap, and I want to make sure I have all the specialty tools and parts I need before I jump in. I will be pulling the entire engine out. Details include new torque converter (TSI, I think, its the only part I dont have), AFR eliminator heads, lunati retrofit hyd roller. Heres what I have/know I need:

adjustable 2 pc timing cover/timing set/gaskets
head/intake/valve cover gaskets/RTV silicone
head bolts/thread sealer/install lube
torque wrench
cherrypicker/engine stand
something to catch coolant
adjustable pushrod length checker

I'm sure I'm forgetting something - please help!

Balancer puller?
If you're going that far as to pull the motor out, you might as well change the timing gear/chain, unless it's been done recently. Also could thing about cam bearings at the same time. Oh, and if you can, E.O.S to break in that new cam.

oil pan gasket, filter and oil.exhaust gaskets. good luck
Timing set is listed above, and I have one of the reusable 1pc oil pan gaskets, and an extra filter.

So the timing cover wont come off without removing the balancer? Also, since it is a HR cam it doesn't need break-in, should I still use EOS?

Motor has less than 500 miles on it so I think the cam bearings are fine. Used only chevron delo in it.
