Dodge Dakota Motor Revs up

1998 Dodge Dakota, 3.6 V6 5 speed ~126000 miles.
Just had the water pump, belt, and tensioner replaced.
When the motor is cold the engine makes a noticiable 'roaring' sound when the clutch is depressed shifting from first to second and again from second to third. It's as if you're leaving the accelerator depressed when depressing the clutch. And no - that isn't occuring / I'm not doing that. It seems to be more noticable when the engine is cold but still happens after it's warm -probably to a lessor extent.
The tach shows the RPMs increasing approx. 100-150 RPMS. and then it settles back down. My garage can't find anything wrong. This didn't happen before the pump and belt got replaced. Anyone have any ideas on why the might be occuring and what to look at? Thanks.

Dakota roaring sound

Sounds like possibly the fan clutch. They had to remove it to replace the WP so something may have happened to it. I just replaced mine a month or so ago (bearing gone) and it will roar a little upon acceleration for the first few seconds. After that its perfectly normal. I have the same exact truck
