    you could put the back tire in the air, put it in gear and rotate it to turn the engine over a few times and get things moving a bit before firing it up... otherwise what you listed looks fine
    crank that fucker up

    He probably means drain the fuel in the throttle bodies. The fuel system will have some old crappy gas in it that won't drain when you drain the tank.

    I'd say if you got the tank changed screw it. Floor it.
