Default Clearing oil from cylinders after injector R&R

Hey guys, been awhile since I posted here. Finally doing some work on the old 7.3 and new orings and gp's are on the menu. Was refreshing my knowledge and reading some articles, ran across a pdf from Swamps that said blowing the oil out of the gp holes was a no-no and could cause engine damage. I swear I learned that trick from Dave or Jonathon way back on TDS when i bought a set of Babies. I recall the first time I did it was replacing a bad injector from swamps and Tom S was standing there when the vc I didnt put any bolts in blew off and covered everything in oil. Lesson learned, two bolts in vc before cranking, its a lot of pressure. Anyway, Has something changed or is that a cya situation? i've already reinstalled the injectors, removed gp's and about to install vc's and turn it over. Thanks a bunch for any information.
E99 with some junk and tuned by C-Fro. Building some more junk to put in it.
