It does sound crazy, however I have heard of that somewhere before. From what I remember it was something to do with the oil feeding the turbo getting into the induction system. This caused the engine to rev its nuts off, and in some cases, switching the ignition off did not stop it. It stopped when the engine eventually gave out (probably due to all its oil being burnt off).
