Tighten your throttle cable. I sometimes experience a lag in, what it seems to be, poor fuel delivery. I could be wrong though.

Try some handy dandy fuel injector cleaner while you're at it.

the MAF sensor is in the Intake tube ...



use " throttle body " cleaner to clean it... refer to this thread:

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1862388016_0_collapsed_2__1.html

use the fuel injector cleaner as well, its a fuel additive that cleans from the inside of your engine, just put it in your gas tank the next time you fill up.

i recommend you check your Air Filter too, and if its dirty replace it (or if you have a K&N just clean it)
