Absolutely not! I've run turbo engines with intercoolers fully off/disconnected (no connection between turbo and intake manifold).
The only thing a leaking intercooler causes is a lack of power and black smoke but that would have to be a big leak. In any case at engine running/idling there is almost no boost to use so again NO.
Cheers
