Nice to have you back, and Merry Christmas by the way.
Enough of polite chit-chat; my main reason for posting; You have to be carefull with modern ignition systems. It's a bad idea to crank the engine with the plugs missing. The high current from the coils can sometimes backfire and damage the ignition circuit in the ECU if there's no appropriate spark plug gap. A sound thing to do would be removing the low voltage connector from the coil's if you plan to crank the engine without the plugs.
Sorry everyone, just a bit of techie info.
