Probably VVTi then if its not the MAF or coils. You should be able to get an error code out of it if the engine management light has come on.
You find how to access & read them if you search this forum. I'd also search VVTi issues as well, has been covered a few times round here.

Seeing as its at 5000 rpm correct me if I'm wrong but that's vvti engagement point, this may happen if oil is too thick or vvti solenoid is gone bad
