No, a flashing warning light is not normal... under any circumstances.
It's flashing for a reason... if it's the cat converter light, you probably just have a blocked cat.

This is the bottom right of the instrument cluster of my R32 GTS-t....
The light on the left is for the cat converter (mine was binned long ago, but the light still works on the dash)

ders a decat in it.can a decat pipe get blocked?
I've never heard of an exhaust getting blocked... the sensor is probably loose or something.
But, to have the light come on at 5000rpm and knowing you don't have a cat makes me worried... the sensor for an item that's no longer present shouldn't bring up a warning light on the dash under specific conditions.

thts the same light tht fleshes on mine.does yours flash whn ur in boust?
Nope... what's happening to your car is definitely not normal


On a 32 I think it's used to fault find ECU error codes.
Hmm interesting... so it might be throwing a fault code at high revs under boost.

OP - I'd be getting that looked at before you potentially kill your engine
