Default stock ECU w/ 460's?

So what would happen if I tried to start my car with the stock ECU and 460's instead of stock (240cc?) injectors? Would it even start?

I think it will flood, the ECU can not handle injectors that large.

Probably not... (read: no)

If I went outside and doubled the values in my cranking table I wouldn't expect my car to start either.

It might start, but it won't like it.

I just wondered what would happen that's all. I am doing a temporary MS unplug and plugging in my stock ECU. Just thought possibly I could save the hassle of an injector swap, but I guess not.
