You cannot flood a carb engine simply by holding the throttle open and cranking the starter. Carb engine's only flood due to incorrect setting of the metering needle or by the buffon behind the wheel stomping up and down on the accelerator pedal, actuating the accelerator pump in the carb, causing excess fuel to be delivered.

As EFI systems do not have an accelerator pump as such, you can't flood the engine unless there's something radically wrong with it.
