Well, thank you both very much. I can't thank you enough...

It turned out that my quick inspection at the side of the road had missed the top intercooler pipe having come off. The deep growling noise was obviously induction noise rather than anything more sinister.

Connected it back up (clip poor) and after clearing the smoke with a quick blast, all is now well again.

I have spent all night thinking it was terminal, and how irritated I was that I missed out on a lovely 960 on Ebay the other week.

Now I'm going to relax all day!

What a wonderful forum this is.
