Without the IC hooked up, there will be no air drawn down through the fuel distributor metering arm and since it won't deflect, the fuel pumps won't run and the fuel distributor won't open up the necessary ports to send fuel to the injectors.

With some creativity a person can hit the local hardware store and scab together the necessary parts to link the throttle body intake with the fuel distributor housing. I've seen a few posts here for that but would have to do some searching.
