Default Surge/stall

Hi, guys.

It's been a harsh winter here in Alberta, and I've started noticing an issue with the Herdsta. (05 'vert, standard, non-turbo)

When I start it cold, and try to drive, it really lugs to the point of almost stalling. I also get the lugging/surging when I'm driving at low rpm's and engine temp is normal.

I'm kind of suspecting plugs/wires, but wondering if the extra-cold weather (-30C to =40C) might have messed with the computer/fuel/ignition settings too.

Maybe. Maybe not.
