Message La-Z-Link. I bought one previously and was satisfied with how it worked. It allows you to charge the oiling system even just sitting on an engine stand. I was able to find a few small turbo oil feed leaks, which was handy. Fill tank with oil, pressurize tank to 50-100psi, connect to the oil pressure sending unit port or motor (need to buy adapter, figure out what thread is used, I think BSPT) and open valve, oil is feed through the system fairly instantly. Might be smart to use thinner oil for this type of pre-lube method, just a thought.

With that being said, if the motor is already in the car, I don't think there is any reason to buy the tank at this point. Disable fuel as mentioned above, Conzult has a nice fuel pump disable feature. I'm not sure I would even remove plugs, just crank it over a few extra second than normal like 5 to 7 seconds. Then enable fuel and fire it up.
