confused what do you mean "big hole" like it stays the same speed before it goes faster? or takes forever to accelerate in second gear?

Yeah, it hesitates. I'd say, clean the MAF sensor. The filter might have affected it.

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

Here's the procedure posted in the "installs" forum:

Most competant shops will be able to do this too. If you have a shop do it, just make sure they have experience with Toyotas though.

I'm 100% sure your K&N filter wasn't brand new when you put it in right? You got it off someone else? If so, you or the previous owner over oiled it to death. So now the oil has messed up your MAF. So do the cleaning procedure and it should solve the problem.

Remember, the problem could happen again if the filter has too much oil on it. Good to hear its working well again. thumbsup
