Rotella T foaming?

I put rotella T in my truck (15w 40) and talked to my uncle shortly after (he has a 7.3 aswell) he told me not to use the Rotella because it foams really bad and can tear some stuff up. I talked to a buddy of mine today too and he said that he had heard the same thing about it. I had never heard this before but what do you guys know about it??

Right. Thats why I was asking on the org for the purpose of finding out some reason behind this. One of my uncles pitcrew men is the head diesel mechanic at ford in Billings, MT (thats where I believe he learned about the foaming) . I think my buddy read it on competition diesel.
