Karman-Vortex airflow sensor

Can anyone tell me if my 95 Camry LE 5S-FE has a Karman-Vortex airflow sensor? The cleaner I have to clean my TB says not to use it on these sensors, which include Supras and most Lexus vehicles.

It is referring to a MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. The 5S-FE only has a MAP (Mass Air Pressure) sensor, not a MAF.

So in other words, it should be fine to use.

All of the lag, none of the boost.

I think it's Manifold Air Pressure.
