Valve cover hose question.

03 6.0 F 250. had a major oil leak a few weeks back and it turned out to be the oil cooler o ring.Found a fuel leak today becasue of o ring on supply line. As I was tearing stuff down,the hose that goes from the valve cover(driver side)to bottom of tube going into the turbo was blown slam apart and looks like it had just broken down into many pieces.

Question is,is this a dealer only part(hose)and would this hose make the truck not run correctly? After I got it back the mechanic said the computer needed to adjust itself due to the batteries being off for 2 weeks. This thing wont get out tis own way and wouldnt pull a greasy string from a cats butt.It wouldnt pull my horse trailer over 50 MPH on flat land.

Thanks for any help.....

From further looking,its the crankcase ventilation hose is what I'm talking about,sorry....

Likely the tech did not perform a VGT learn on your truck, so it doesn't know what the turbocharger is doing which is why you have no power.

That tube, I believe comes as part of the turbocharger inlet tube, and I would imagine is a dealer only item.
