Yes, that's pretty much it. If you have a 08+ then you will also need to swap the intake cam, as the position indicator for the cam is different than the older year models. Also it appears some 08+ models have an electronic thermostat, but that can simply be swapped over.

You can also do some other things, such as the popular BSD and draining the PCV system to the ground to stop all that gunk from gumming up the ports of your new engine, but of course these things aren't necessary. You will still get carbon buildup from the EVAP system and the injectors, but carbon doesn't really hurt valves like gunk will.
