Bad turbo, Super dirty air filter, bad boost leak, EBPV stuck closed, the list is pretty endless until some stuff is ruled out

PIS 230/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff

Sounds like your ford dealer sucks and are just throwing parts at it. Go somewhere else who knows about the 7.3L. Lack of boost is pretty easy to trace down. Do you even have a boost gauge?

There are only a handful of places you will leak boost or drive pressure. Pressurize the intake system and spray soapy water on all connections. Look for soot on the up-pipes as well.

Get yourself a piece of PVC pipe and reducers to hook up an air hose. Then pull your main intake hose off after the filter and put about 40 psi to it (turn your air compressor regulator down to 40psi to do this). Shouldnt need any more than that.
