I want to take the engine out, change head gasket, clean, de-gunge and paint it. Im then fitting my Nodiz pro ignition system.

Its a 1380 A+ with HIF44.

Can i run it out of the car?

Yes, you can run it out of the car.

You need to have a battery connected, an earth connected and a ignition switch connected and some fuel.
