    Here are some causes of the CEL you recorded:

    If it were the O2 sensor like the dealer suspected, I don't think catastrophic failure would have been likely, and I think you'd have noticed the ECU attempting to enrich the mixture. Given what happened, the other causes seem more likely IMO.

    Possible the CAI ran lean enough to cause issues?

    Hmm... Well, under high boost and with a very lean fuel curve I suppose serious problems are possible. Then again, a dirty MAF or any other condition leading the ECU to use a very lean curve even when under high load could elevate temps too. I guess my final answer is an emphatic, definite "maybe!"

    #3 coil ignite? turbo line went, turbo is seized?

    you need to get a comp test & leakdown down on the engine and also locate the source of the "oil leak" if there is one.

    you will also at the same time find out if your coil went. or if turbos oil line is fubared.

    do this asap and post results.

    it could be alot of things and diagnosing over the internet aint easy. esp with info given thus far.
