    You should've thought to check the engine light before you bought the car, and before you spent money on modifications.

    That's neither here nor there. Can you take a large picture of the passenger side of the engine bay for me? Especially of the turbo if you can.

    It sounds to me like the person who previously had the car may have removed a manual boost controller that was in it, and just put a plastic connector where the boost controller was. Wouldn't be the first time.

    Post a picture of your engine bay. It'll be the easiest way for me to rule out quite a few little things

    Great pic. Yeah, if you replace that plastic reducer... you should be good! After you replace it... unplug your battery for a few minutes to reset the ECU.
