Thanks, hrst! The wash bettwen the dev and bleach i read that it may be optional here: http://brodie-tyrrell.org/wiki/index.php?C41Processing "A quick wash step here (one change of water, approx 30s) will reduce forward-contamination of the bleach and prolong its life. Water is not a very effective stop agent however, so this bath should be long enough just to swill excess developer from the tank and spirals."
Never thought about the dilution of the dev with a wet pre-wash. I have the lift but it's not mounted with because I still lack the cog for the tank, so first color dev I will do should be only with the magnet and I already know about not pouring the stabilizer trought the lift. Will do what many do and as you say, even without the lift.
