Depends, What type of engine management are you using. If MAP based, like the AEM, or Hydra, car will start and run.

I run a UTEC and can start without the IC on. It runs rough as hell, but runs.

Oh, I get it now.. I was confused by the original post. You said turbo to intake.. That would not matter.. You mean turbo to throttle body... Yes, even if MAF based, the car will run.. It will smoke alot and be very rough.. I've seen it done.

I've never seen a car able to start without a MAF sensor in the intake air that was MAF based.

If you are running a Hydra, or AEM, it is fine.

well i fired it up for the first time without the intercooler...you was right it was smokeing badly...and it was running really rough, it didn't want to stay cranked. guess i will just wait til the new intercooler gets here to start it again.
