engine management light

Hi Guys
I have just purchased a 2001 (y) bugeye Subaru impreza wrx with prodrive.
After 3 days of getting used to the car i floored it in 2nd gear and hit the rev limiter.At this point the engine management light came on and stayed on.
Next morning on start up the lamp was out.
I tried it again the day after bringing the rev limiter on in 1st gear this time (after warming the engine of course) and the lamp came on again.
Led to believe it could be too much turbo boost at high revs but unsure.
Any ideas much appreciated.

Re: engine management light

quite common for a camsensor to go over 50k as is a coilpack or 2 to go on 70k, at least it was done under warrenty or it would be a £200 noter at subaru by the time they have fitted it and the vat.
