Can you look at the codes with an OBD2? It's impossible to guess what it could be.

Could be nothing

Did the engine warning light stay on when the car was started the next time or did it clear? If the later I wouldn't worry too much unless it keeps coming on.

No codes with the reader so cleared it and touch wood it hasn't returned

Hopefully you're alright then.

Mine was on for months and I only have a catback. I've had the overboost code pop up many times since though (P1235). Depending on the cat back (mine is CTEC) you might need a remap in the future.

Think Ant said it was the trustful cel for boost control. New exhaust can free up air flow so boost can go past limits.

Just something to keep an eye you for

Sure it was the engine warning light? Could it have been the AYC warning?
