    I would let it idle a while to warm up gradually...

    Water temp will affect engine warm up. Use caution if the thermostat was removed.

    A cold seizure is possible if the engine isn't properly warmed up before going WOT.

    Cold seizure is from the aluminum piston expanding from heat faster than the cast iron cyliner liner. If you properly warm the engine, you'll be fine
