Anyone notice a gurgle and hesitation after starting their car just before the idle drops? Mine sort of gurgles, seems to miss a beat, and then drop the revs fine. I'm just curious if that is normal...

Yup. It’s the normal cold start tune. The bypass valve opens in cold start and basically creates a vacuum leak. That gurgle is the bypass valve closing and the ECU compensating for the vacuum changes.
