You definitely have to replace the i/o module. The EMU is questionable as it depends on the current hardware version/type. The shelf does not get replaced.

An EVA3000 does not have Loop Switches so there is no re-useability to worry about.

You will either not need loop switches, or if you are adding disk shelves, then there should be a pair of switches added to the upgrade.
