Tdi proper startup after oil cooler lines replaced

Just finished replacing the lines on a Tdi. Any special procedure before I start her up? I guess I'll fill the oil cooler (with the bottom line connected) and top line manually.

Dosn't the oil cooler drain every time you change the filter anyway? I'd just fill the girl up, start it, shut her down and check again. I'm sure this is not correct due to the oil pump not being properly primed but does it really matter...really?
Thats what I did with mine...

I try and get some oil in the filter when I change that but otherwise just start it up and the oil pressure is there after a couple of agonising seconds!

You can disconnect the power to the fuel shut off solenoid and crank the engine over a few different times at 20-30 second bursts with rests for the starter between cranks. The oil light will probably go out while doing this.
