Blouch install instructions says on line # 12
Before connecting the oil drain line, crank the engine without firing until a steady stream of oil flows from the turbo oil drain port.

How can I do this short of unplugging the fuel pump? I found not fuse for the fuel pump.
Help and smartass remarks are always appreciated!

That's not a bad idea, any others?

Man how the heck do you do that, only way to disconnect the drain hose easily is to pull the turbo!

Yeah, I'm probably not going to be doing this strictly by the book. I think I might be able to get the lower oil drain line off the engine though. We'll see....

At least with my '07 FXT, holding the go-pedal to the floor when cranking the engine places the ECM in "flood mode" which cuts fuel so the engine just cranks but doesn't start. I verified this before I did the turbo swap.
I will follow up on this at the dealership this morning!

Thanks all
