It would be much easier to just crank at WOT, letting a LOT of air in the engine...(just like back in the day with carburated engines). If flooded too bad, might need to add oil in the cylinders to restore compression.

i've never had any luck with that. my e30 used to flood when it got cold and cranking at WOT would never get it started. Eventually i put a switch on the fuel pump line, i'd kill the power to the fuel pump, car would start, and then i'd get the power back on and everything would work swimmingly

When is real cold out, the mixture is heavily enriched for starting. So much so that any fuel injected car can flood if it doesn't start on the first crank. In other words, never start a car and shut off immediately...like within a second.

If the car didn't start properly, there are prolly other issues but this flooding behaviour is not uncommon. Flooding to hydro lock is pretty extreme!
