My daily driver SVT does almost the same thing. Initial cold start it revs to 2200rpm for about 1-2 sec then settles to around 1500rpm. I take off in 1st gear and the revs drop and the car bogs pretty bad. Once the car warms up for about a min, no more 1st gear bog. It only seems to do this when the outside temperature is less than about 40-45 degrees. I’ve learned to just deal with it, but if someone else is having the same issue, it makes me wonder…

Anyone else have this problem?
