Default hesitation after starting engine

About 5-10 seconds after I start my car it hesitates so bad it won't accelerate unless I'm at WOT. After it's done with it's "fit" it runs fine except there's a very slight hesitation, almost a misfire, noticed moreso at about 30 in 3rd gear. If I start the car and let it idle it'll start hesitating about 5-10 seconds after starting it. Once it's done with it's "fit" the rpm's will jump to 1500-2k and go down to normal idle. There is no hesitation at idle at all. Here's a list of things I've changed, ECU, both O2 sensors, knock sensor, MAF, coil, spark plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, fuel pump, cam sensor, crank sensor, fuel injectors. That's all I can think of right now but I'm sure there's more. I always run 91+ octane. Anyone with any ideas please help.

timing off? maybe a bad injector if you're getting a misfire...
