83 280zx hesitation when cold, smooth at operating temp

Hi, I have a problem that started in the last year or so. When the engine is cold, it runs like crap. It acts like it wants to stall when you give it gas, though it never does. If you step on the pedal, it idles down, and makes popping noises. But If I wait till the motor is warmed up, then it runs fine. Would could be causing this?

Could be a bad cold start injector if it does it when its not up to temp and Id check the idle screw as well
