Engine management light. Lambda?

Hi all

First post after buying a blob eye ppp wagon a few weeks ago. Already it's thrown up 2 issues, one being the callipers seizing but I am having that cured with some refurbed ones from Godspeed as suggested on here.

The other is a little less obvious to diagnose. The engine check light has come on in recent days and I haven't driven it much since. The exhaust had a slight blow when I bought it but it is now significantly worse. Is this likely to have thrown the lambda and brought the light on? It sounds like the blow is from the front half of the system.

The idle isn't solid like it was and tends to hunt a bit and the engine bogs down when under 2k and off boost.

Any advice much appreciated, looking to book it into a garage later in the week but wanted to get some independent advice first.
