Yep, totally normal. Set it flowing and it'll be fine.

Lots of guys run it that way totally normal. If you dont like that idea theres a good tech artical on this site on how to build bleeds for the solinoids. I have a bleed per kit on my car to eliminate pressure creep, but if you research it its really just personal prefferance on wether or not you need the bleeds.
