Hi....welcome to the Forum Robbo

It could be a gummed up turbo and by giving it a blast it may have flagged up a boost issue which by switching off and on again has reset the Engine Management ECU.

Best thing to do now is to run a scan on the ECU for any stored fault codes and if it comes up with a turbo related fault then clear it out and run it again to see if it returns to the ECU memory
