    IC question

    Hey guys! I have a question about my inter cooler. I tried to search first but it was down. I am in te middle of a oil pressure gauge and I have the IC off. I have never had a turbocharged car before and I would like to know if it would hurt anything to start the car w/ the IC off? I ask because I want to check for any oil leeks at the pressure sender because the IC is a PITA to put back on. I dont want to put that sucker back on and find a leak then have to take it off again. I have been thinking about it for a bit and I dont think it will hurt anything but I figured I'd ask since I'm a noob. oh and sorry for the essay

    oh yeah! I forgot the MAF was before the turbo. I'm used to working on my old 72 VW bug, haha! Luckily everything went well and there was no leaks
