Oil priming new turbos

So having finally got my new turbos on and engine in I'm nearly at the point of starting her up for the first time  

To not inialate my fresh turbos how is best to get them full of oil?

I'm think of taking the fuel pump fuse out and turning the engine over to get oil pressure up

Had also though I should disconnect the coil packs to ensure it won't fire up if there is any residual fuel left in the system

What are you thoughts?

I'm (hopefully) going to be in this position soonish.  I was told that running them as normal with oil in the system will be fine - pressure is insane and they will be fed (everything being correct) almost instantly with oil...

Happy to hear other opinions though!

Pull the icm's apart if you have them, lot less hassle than coil packs if you worried about residual fuel start up.

oil pressure is there within a second or so , your not going to damage them as they will already have oil on the journals from who ever built them.
