First off, I doubt the rear main is leaking, there is a drain from the valley above right next to the inspection cover.
Second, no need to weld any of the pre-turbo exhaust. All parts can be bought new and are fairly inexpensive.
Third, some poeple change the reservoir oil, some dont. It wont kill the motor if you dont, it all comes from the bottom, but if you do change it, you can get an extra 2 quarts or so of dirty oil out.
Fourth, Dont use "oil additives" on a 7.3, just use good oil. Shell, Delvac....etc.
Fifth, $100 for an oil change????? I hope you got synthetic, otherwise you got raped
