I disagree with any statement that says "zero loss" - I'm also really confused as to what you're trying to say. It seemed to culminate into turbo=bad (to which I say thermodynamics can disagree).

As for the video.... I'm not following why it's pertinent to an intake manifold. Yes, this machine and an IM have vacuum - but on a significantly different scale.

An intake manifold at 25 inHg = 635 torr
That machine can pull down to 1 torr

PV=nrT prevails
Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.
