Intercooler

I know and understand that with an intercooler revieving fresh air you lower intake tempratures and reduce the chances of detonation.My question is mostly for the tuning If I have a non intercooled set up tuned will the same tune work well after adding an intercooler with no changes in the tuning

The non intercooled tune will work but it will not be taking advantage of the new intercooler. You will want to get a more agressive tune with the intercooler.

True ^^^..You will also loose some boost to the innercooler being used and the charge will now be cooler and you can run some more boost into the engine as well...So yes, the original tune will run , but it can be made better at that point...
