The only "parts" should be Drei Bond silicone - Type 1209 and loctite 5900 sealer and some of the micro-encapsulated (self-sealing) bolts. Perhaps the o-rings on the sparkplug tubes.

I think the muffler on that side needs to come off and you will need a second person to position the cams while you re-attach the cam cover. Porsche shops have cam holder tools but most say they don't use them.

I would guess 4 hours or less with the right tools/hoist - so their estimate seems high to me.

8 hours is a bit steep, 6 hours would be more reasonable. As far as parts go to do the job right youll need either dreibond or loctite 5900, 6 spark plug tube o rings (one at each end), a new variocam solenoid seal, 3 green plugs that seal the cam cover, and 12 new encapsulated cam cover bolts. I would however use the tool which holds the cams... it only takes 2 minutes to install it and its worth peace of mind if you ask me. You definately need to remove the muffler and the support bracket. It also helps a lot to lower the rear of the engine as it will make removing the cam cover much easier.
