It should work. Just work carefully and quickly. I've seen valve spring compressors (for when you do the work with the head still on) open the valve's seal, compression is lost, and the valve drops in. Also, the retainers are a little tough to deal with because of size and they like to shoot off if not properly seated, so keep your eyes on them.
As far as the back, yes they are a pain. However, when you remove the plenum, believe it of not, there is room to work. The worst part is hooking up the compressor to each cylender. Believe me when I say, I would love to meet the engineer that comes up with some of the ideas. My guess is it's the CEO's nephew that got an engineering degree online for around 50 bucks. Life could be so much easier for everyone if things were just thought through.
Let me know if you have questions or problems, and good luck.
