I removed my bumper yesterday and noticed behind it is pretty dirty. I would like to hose it off maybe when I clean my car tonight. Can I safely leave the bumper off and have everything in the open, including the side mount intercool, and hose it off without causing any damage? Thanks.

Is that all? I'm going to cover the horns, and the intercooler since I don't really trust water on it, even though they sometimes get wet when driving in the rain.

your intercooler is fine getting wet. The horns may have problems if you get water in them but they'll dry up. Otherwise, as long as you aren't using a pressure washer there is no problem giving your car a wash without the front bumper. You shouldn't be driving without one though as it can mess up your radiator and intercooler with road debris.

Re: (Skinner)

Thanks everyone, No plans of driving it since I was just cleaning up some parts in front. I mainly planned on running a gentle stream on both sides just to clean up behind it, glad to know it's safe. Thanks again for the advice.
