IDI? Mine isn't an IDI, and the bentley article for this clearly states (for 1Z, AHU):

Compression, checking (engine codes 1Z, AHU)
  • Disconnect fuel cut-off valve on Diesel injection pump.
  • Disconnect harness connector for quantity adjuster on Diesel injection pump.
  • Remove all glow plugs using 3220 hinged socket.
  • Install VAG1323/12 adapter in place of glow plugs.
  • Check compression using US1110 compression tester.
I still think that there's really nothing that can go wrong as long as I make sure the glow plugs are not seized before leaving home. But if the concensus is that it shouldn't be done, that's what I'll go with...
