Hi All

Something I see on turbo builds, when everything is fitted, they "prime" the turbo system to get oil/pressure etc. in the system so it's not starting dry, by cranking the engine over without it fully starting up.

Curious how this process is done on the CRZ, as it's push-button start and fires up right away, without that traditional "start-up/crank over" sound you get for a couple of seconds in other cars.

Probably really simple, but thought I'd ask :)

You could just crank it by hand
