By the way, I've read some people disconnect the Crank Position Sensor when they prime the motor. Then I've heard it's not necessary, what's the consensus here?

If you floor the gas pedal it makes the motor just crank. I removed my fuel pump fuse (under hood fuse box) to ensure it didn't start after my turbo swap. Worked like a charm, I cranked a few times until the oil pressure light went out ( 3#) consistently.

Simply unplug your fuel pump fuse, it should be the top right fuse (IIRC) in the engine bay fuse box. Diagram is on the underside of the fuse box cap

Crank it over a few times just to get the pressure up and going, should be about ~10 seconds worth of cranking; do like 3-4 cranks of 3seconds segments so you don't overwork the starter.

Good luck!
