Wonder what the A10 does in comparison. I was helping my buddy shop and he settled on an A10 regular ecoboost. Definitely doesn't feel that slow to me lol
A10 (base bolt-on/stock tune non PP car here) totally transforms the car and is fun to drive to boot. Punches above cars of its class. I could never go back to the MT82. If/when I go GT I'll be getting some A10 variant too considering how well those do bone stock.

The FOrd tune SUCKS. Get a proper 93 tune from a reliable 3rd party. My '19 EB stock tune drove just as shitty as the '20 HPP. With a tune it embarrassed the HPP.

The A10 masks all kinds of crap.

Are you sure that is a green HPP Ecoboost ? The wheels look like it is just an regular Ecoboost with HPP emblems. I think someone is having a fun time with a regular Ecoboost.

I think it's legit, that grille is unique to the HPP as far as I know. Those wheels are also a possible option for any Ecoboost. Here's an example of a new car that I found on a lot:

Yes it is HPP. It has those wheels because it doesn’t have handling pack.

Does anyone here think the HPP would sell better if it were called “SVO” and had SVO badging and a little more graphical differentiation? I’m not an EB owner and the SVO was a sales failure but I think most people respect it. And, 330hp is pretty stout...

Makes sense, I think the current team name is ST (sport technologies) that they started slapping on everything (and irritating FoST and FiST owners). Ford being Ford currently with bringing back old name plates (Bronco, Mach 1, maybe T-Bird) an SVO package would make sense. But this is also Ford being Ford.
SVO was not only a car but a Ford division. Unless they resurrect the division, which they said they are not doing, SVO will not be used again.

The current name is Ford Performance.

Count me clueless then after seeing all the "Ford Performance" sill panel covers lol. I thought they kept some abbreviated "special-something-or-another-team" name.

And in my neck of the woods there's 10x more ecoboosts then GT's. Seems here the ecoboost is the goto Mustang haha.
It’s a Winnipeg thing. Seriously. Back in the day, when I first got licenced, there were a ton of fox-body turbo 4s, lots of V6, and GTs were rare like unicorns. More GTs in the affluent areas like Tuxedo, Charleswood etc. 4s and 6s mostly in St. Vital, St. Boniface, Transcona, the Kildonans...this was in the early 80s. I am from St. Vital, and my 1st Stang was a 6. 2nd was a turbo 4. 3rd was a GT. 4th GT, 5Th GT (current) - once you go V8, you can’t go back lol.
