Default Rolled Car, Salvaging Engine, What to check?

I rolled the car and all the oil drained out from the intake. I'm unfamiliar with the modular V8 engines and I want to know what to check exactly before attempting to restart it.

I know the upper and lower intakes are probably full of oil, would I have to get that off and cleaned before starting?

I also know I have to pull the plugs and clean those, then do an oil change.

The Mass Air was soiled in oil, and so was the little sensor behind that so I'll have those cleaned.

Anything else that needs to be checked? Thanks.

I would be sure to rotate the engine once you've removed the spark plugs to pump out any oil laying on top of the pistons. That could be devastating to valves if the cylinders are full of oil.

Sorry to hear about that may I ask how you rolled it? But the oil in the intake may cause it to not run or run good...but just make sure there arnt any major leaks or cracks in anything make sure all fluids are good and I suppose that's all you can do with out pulling.it apart to look... you might have to replace some seals as well if oil is everywhere

I could do that just by removing the plugs and bumping the starter a few times to just crank it correct?

It only leaked out from intake mostly. No leaks anywhere else. Its been sitting in my driveway for the last two days and no leaks elsewhere. Seals should be good. I shut down the engine within 10 seconds after it flipped.

Yes sir. The oil will shoot out of the plug holes. It can create a real mess though, so you might want to have rags close by the plug holes. But if you just bump it a few times (enough times that each piston can come up) it should keep from squirting too far. Keep in mind, even after doing that and all the rest of the clean up you can do, it's still probably going to smoke like a freight train on initial start up. But will clear up once it burns off the oil residue on the cylinder walls. I rolled one and was able to get many more years out of the engine. So you should be fine. Good luck!

Couldn't get it to crank or whatever. Don't have time to mess with it all. Will probably find the issue later on.

Anyone know where to hook up the hoist chains safely and securely on the Cobra block? Never pulled an engine before and would like some pointers as well. Thanks.
