Welcome to the forum.

I would either look at the maf sensor or consider that it may have been because you were giving it a long run you were blowing burning carbon deposits out of the cat.

You can buy proper maf cleaning stuff but I have seen a recommendation to use brake fluid and thinners.

Personally I'd stick to proper stuff.

Tbh I'd hold off unless you get the same symptoms again, just keep an eye out for any more sparks or reduced performance/increased fuel consumption.
