Pretty simple actually...
Intercooled simply means you lower the blower/turbo discharge air temperature either within the intake manifold (i.e. Allen Superchargers, '03-04 Cobra, '99-'03 Lightning, etc) or within the intake system itself, by using heat exchangers. Intercooler systems can be either water-to-air or just air-to-air. The belief is air-to-air is more efficient.
Aftercooled is a term that Vortech really uses to describe their "intercooler".
