idle surge on cold start - ptk kit

I just bought a 2000 saleen with a ptk turbo kit on it and once in a while when I cold start the car the idle surges for like 30 seconds and eventually clears up. Is this a common issue with these cars and anything that can be fixed? I have never had a mustang / ford so I don't know too much about these yet. Thanks!

idle air bypass might help some but not sure if your year has one that will work like the 87 to 95 5.0 ones from steeda

Yea thats what I was thinking too ... I'm going to try cleaning it, it just seems strange that it only idle rough on start up if cold.
