One tiny little extra... the decel valve... 

The 5kCSTQs at least have one.  It is computer controlled when the throttle
closes and bypasses the air-flow sensor, allowing the sensor plate to fall
and cut off fuel.

Whether this happens fast enough to make a difference is a different matter.
It'll probably keep us amused for a while discussing it though.
