he is not talking about a powerstroke, he is talking about an IDI, which comes with a crankcase depression relief valve to keep a slight vacuum on the motor. Unlike powerstrokes, which have superior sealing, the 7.3 and 6.9 motor WILL leak without the valve in place. some Powerstroke owners install a road draft tube , but when it comes to an idi, it is a completely different engine than a powerstroke.
Also IDI's have no intercoolers to collect oil, and only see between high teen boost numbers at the very max if they are even equipped with a turbo so boots slipping are not an issue
