How to crank without starting?

I am about 3/4 or a little more into the install of my GT38R, Non-EBPV Pedistal and bellowed up pipes. The directions for the turbo say to crank it for a few seconds a few times to get oil up into the turbo before starting. What is the best way to do this on our trucks?

BTW, I'm pretty beat up from the job, but it isn't near as bad as I thought. I don't even have anyone else here to help hold stuff or grab tools. FWIW the topside creeper is a Godsend! (Even though it's giving me a rash on my chest...hahaha) Can't wait to fire this thing up!

Hmm...I know I JUST posted that, but I had an idea. Can I just put my DP Tuner to "anti-theft" and crank it like that? It should pump oil around and what not right?

go to the fuse box in the engine compartment, pull out the #22 fuse. that fuse supplies power to the computer.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

There is a relay on the passenger side fender well that gives power to the starter solenoid. Just short the two large terminals without the key, starter will turn but the injectors won't fire.
