hmmmm. it shouldnt be so bad when it warms up. the gas throttle cable is probably just freezing. just use the OEM belt. itll be fine.

also check to see if the throttle cable isnt slightly bent or pinched anywhere. I had a problem with it getting stuck because someone tried to tidy up the bay, and pinched the cable.

yeah it's always better to let your car heat up before any driving. Also i got the Greddy timing belt due to the longer life on it, and it meets OEM stats. I'm guessing it's the cable freezing.....pump it a few times
