Ok everyone I will be turning the key finally on my car this week. The car had motor removed, head replaced, every gasket etc... The car has been offline for 6 months. I plan on uploading the single turbo flash and Needed tmap settings. Any other start up procedures or advice?

Prime the turbo. Disconnect the fuel pump fuse (#70) and push to start the car while keeping your foot on the brake. the car will crank but not start, let it crank for about 10-15 seconds. This will ensure oil gets pumped into and primes that new big boi turbo.

Thank you Alex, I thought about this method instead of fuses. With this car who knows. I assumed if I pulled the clips then there is guarantee no fuel.

that's not a fool proof method, residual fuel can still try to make it start. Pull the injector plugs. ensure oil is in the filter. prime for 10-15 seconds after you confirm the oil filter housing is full of oil.

AH, it's been a minute since I did this, I forgot to mention, I also disconnect the coil packs. This makes sure no firing happens.
