Starting a car thats been stationary for a while?

I need to get my car out of the garage & running, it's been dormant for a couple of months now..

Car has fresh oil (done about 200 miles) so no need to change, other than disconnecting the cam angle sensor & cranking it over a few times to get some oil round it, is there much more I can do?

If I do this, does it stop the injectors firing? Because i'll flood the engine & it will never start otherwise...

I ahve read that removing the cam angle sensor plug will stop the injecotors and ignition pack doing there thing. a good few people will crank for a good minute or so.

Think about how long the car has been stationary for. If its only a month or so it should be fine. Cars spend a few months on boats when they come across from japan and I doubt they get any special treatment when they are driven off the boat. I could be wrong though.

the main thing is to get oil around the engine before it actually fires.
