Crazed How to Disable Fuel Pump to Prime Turbo?

Hi all.

As above really. Car is a 2004 1.9 150bhp JTDm Alfa GT.

Managed to get everything back together and am just waiting on a second hand intercooler as the current one is leaking.

I then jsut need to refill with oil and start her up.

I obviously need to prime the turbo and believe it is done be cranking the engine with the fuel pump disabled to build oil pressure in the turbo.

Coulf anybody tell me how to disable the fuel pump please? I guess the best way is by removing a fuel but i want to make absolutely SURE the engine will not start!!
