Jesus all this guessing...

EML light comes on when the DME cant control the engine propery, you said your intakr boot was broken so my thoughts are that your TB is seized(a motor tries to move it , if it cant then the wire will move it and you will have an EML light)

As the throttle is part of the xSC system that light (and brake light) will come on aswell.

That the light isnt permanent is usually a sign of this happening.
