Standard Zetec Vortech SC to SVT engine

I can possibly get my hands on a Vortech SC for a decent price for my SVT although it came off of a standard Zetec engine. After doing a bit of searching and reading, it looks like the Vortech SC bolts right up to the SVT with no real modifications or differences (other than what's in the install manual). The only real thing I need to worry about is the intake tubing... so that should be easy.

Specific Vortech hardware questions:
-Since this kit doesn't come with the aftercooler box (I think it's called H.O.)? Is it possible to mount one after the fact providing I find one?
-I read it's possible to mount an intercooler instead of an aftercooler, is that possible?

If I were to add the standard Votech kit on my SVT (no HO or intercooler), what increases am I looking at from 170?
