Question is this ok?

hey all, not a terrible problem but my new afe intercooler wont be in for about 2 weeks and my old one got a gash in it...the side of the intercooler is a little bowed out but it is only about an inch and could be bent back into place. i am wondering if it would be fine for me to drive the truck with the intercooler in that condition i need the truck over the holidays and i dont want it sitting in the shop over through that time.

will it be fine for me to drive it like so or will it cause damage to my turbo or something else, also would it give me less boost or something due to the side being bowed out? my mechanic says it wont be a problem and should be fine for the holiday season

thanks

How about any minor issues? Things such as hurting my turbo? It is tuned so should I maybe tune it back to stock nodpf or should it not matter? I don't think I need to but I'm not 100% sure

Thanks

I second response from Scruffy. It should not hurt your truck to drive it. But since your intake system now has a hole it might not build as much pressure. Similar to a leaking intercooler boot or coupling. The only concern that I can think to be concerning the turbo is if any water or dirt gets in the puncture hole that might find its way to the turbo. But I'm not sure if that's should be a huge concern since its a fairly small hole. You may want to try and cover it temporary with something.
