Is the engine coming out? Like does it need repaired? If not, leave it in.
All you need is fuel (injectors and pumps) and air (turbos) and that's it. The engine itself doesn't "need" anything, other than head studs. Is a cam nice? I guess. Can't tell much difference with mine. Pushrods? Sure, if you're turning higher rpm. Valvesprings? Again, sure if you're turning higher rpm.
If it's in good running condition right now, I'd just do head studs, ~60-80% injectors (120-180hp), 64/71 over a 480, modded single or dual pumps, EFILive, lift pump, and a built trans. That's it. Boom there's your goal. Don't over complicate it.
And if you're turning it higher, do the pushrods and valvesprings.
