OK guys
haven't bother you for a while but last night while 've driving up the hill
at speed of 145k/h and loaded with my music equipment and a passenger
suddenly the red turbo light lit and staid red until I stop the
engine....after that has gone.just wonder why that happened?any reasons to
worry-the turbo pressure didn't changed and everything behave normal.the
point is I drove the night before the same way and even went up to 150k/h
speed just to test what the car was able to do and nothing happened
then...Any ideas?sheers

Had similar problem just few weeks ago. High speed and heavy load with
Turbo light.
Check for oil or dirt in the air filter housing - if present, then
clean out all pipe work you can get at with petrol and dry out well
with compressed air.
Also - make sure your filter is clean - OEM is best in my opinion.
Also get in under the filter housing. There is a small reservoir with
clips - a grit/dust catcher - clean this out.
This fixed my turbo light problem - but i've also stepped off the gas
a little since then.....
