Maybe high mileage and lack of service to the engine? Maybe you raced that car too many times? I'm only guessing. When was the last full tuneup? By your part or Toyota? How was the condition of the flywheel at the clutch install? Did anyone even check the flywheel? Have a compression check done. Ever installed a CAI? Ever cleaned the MAF and/or throttle body? Thrown a CEL before for similar circumstances? Reset the ECU? This is all guestimation.

This car only has 45,000 miles on it yes it's been raced a couple of times the last tune up was @ 40,000 by me. The flywheel had some hot spots and needed to be resurfaced the disc was burnt. Compression had not been done or never installed a CAI. I did clean the MAF and throttle body. Thrown a CEL before for similar circumstances? The ECU has been reseted. I don't know what esle to do maybe take it to toyota and have them inspect it, When your in 1st gear the car feels like your in 3rd gear and feels like it bogging out, and it's lost it's high end power...but it only does it once in awhile...
