Does this apply to just the turbo'ed engines, or the NA as well?

Every once in awhile this tip rears it's head and I check again . . . 

_None_ of the NA I-5's I've ever dealt with (8 different cars
altogether) would stall when you pulled the dipstick or opened the oil
filler cap.  And they've all run fine and experienced relatively normal
gas milage.

Any thoughts anyone?
