I had the exact problem.....mine was 1 injector not sealing completely after shut down. So it yielded a slow leak, thus flooding out the engine.

Since the injectors are part of the fuel system past the acumulator, the check valves, the pumps and even the fuel distributer, the performance of these parts had no affect relating to my problem. Flooding out the engine is the main culprit here, or at least was on mine.

5 minutes off-no problem, 10 minutes off-longer than usual cranking time, 15 or more minutes off-would not start until completely cold. It is not the cool down that matters, it's the time it takes to evaporate the puddled fuel in the cylinder.

Again, this was my experiance...your situation may vary.

Simply remember, just because your injectors were cleaned a year ago, it's a moot point today!
