Let me take a shot at an answer:

The long neck requires that you remove the secondary intake manifold (otherwise known as the boost recirculation manifold) that sits on top of and marry's up with the intake manifold at the throttle body. The long neck then mounts directly to the throttle body. But with removing the manifold, you'll have to install a BOV and make provisions for all the other stuff that was attached to that manifold (boost pressure sender, over-boost pressure switch, and decel valve if you choose to keep it).

Short neck intercoolers: Just plug and play. Take off the stock, and put on the replacement. As far as I know, both have similar air flow and cooling capabilities (assuming the same footprint)...but can't speak from experience having never compared the two.
