its not really a problem or have to worry about, in most cases this happens when you have Short Ram, Short Ram sucks hot hair

I still don't think that your car is supposed to do it ...ever. I'm not a certified Toyota Mechanic or nothing, but that doesn't sound right.

If you would take the time to read my post you would realize that i said that I am NOT a certified Toyota Mechanic, I do however know a lot about MY car, and it has NEVER done it before. That's all I was saying man, I wasn't telling him that you were full of crap or nothing. Just giving him my experience. thumbsup

E.C.U. adjusting to weather changes when you hit it at full throttle. Nothing to worry about just the maf sensor reading the amount of air goin' in. My car does this sometimes also check to see if you maf sensor isn't dirty or if you need a new one.
