disconnect the injectors, pull the spark plugs, then crank it over until you see the oil pressure gauge move.

This ^ or remove the timing cover and timing belt and spin the oil pump independently with a drill then hook everything back up.

Just pull the efi dude and crank till you see oil pressure. 30sec cranking. 30sec cool down for starter. Repeat. Cranking rpm with everything hooked up is fine. Will take 1-2 cycles.

I forgot about the EFI fuse, ya do that. Pulling the plugs removes load that the starter has to turn, but it shouldn't really matter.
