Do not remember if it is a Federal rule or if the manufacturer programing the computer for this, but on all my cars and other cars I heard from friends, cranking at WOT cuts the injectors so you can flush a flooded engine.
Never had a Cobra, so I am basing this on the Ford GT procedure on changing oil, but that is a full dry sump system. The lifters are hydraulic so you need to pump oil into them, that is why you WOT crank after an oil change.
just start it and let it idle, cranking it with or without starting still rotates all the internal as mentioned before just without fuel it is not rotating at 1000rpm.

What different does this make? You still are not priming the engine with an external pump.
