156 1.8 Twinny underpowered cold.

Recently on cold start my twinny is very underpowered, seems like there is nothing there when you press the accelerator but after a minute or so it seems to surge into life as usual still a tad underpowered but after a bit all is well. Is thisa MAF fault or more likely a Lamda ??

Based on a similar problem I had, I'd say the MAF...

I would say it's either temp sensor or MAF, but without a fault code your urinating into a hurricane.
