The Ford EcoBoost High Performance Package is something of a Mustang parts-bin special, what the British call a "bitsa car" (bitsa this, bitsa that...).

The model's cabin stays pretty close to stock, with major changes consisting of an engine-turned aluminum instrument panel surround with boost and oil-pressure gauges. 

There's also a serialized dash plaque ahead of the passenger.

The EcoBoost High Performance Package weighs about 200 pounds less than a comparable V8 GT, with 150 of those pounds being liberated from over the car's nose.

Weight distribution is given as 53/47 front to rear.

A multi-mode exhaust with Normal, Sport, Track and schedulable Quiet mode (to avoid waking the neighbors) is standard.

In full-angry mode, the exhaust pops and crackles liberally on overrun, not unlike a hot hatch.

Model-specific visual cues up front include a blacked-out grille with asymmetric tri-bar pony emblem, a deeper front chin spoiler cribbed from the GT, and subtle metallic gray "whisker" stripes along the hood's character lines.
