NFS Unbound - Engine Swap Explained

In NFS Unbound you can make a number of vehicle modifications. One of them is engine swap. Here you will find its description.

Need for Speed Unbound is the latest installment of the popular series of racing games from EA. The game puts in our hands a number of cars, each of them offering numerous customization options. One of the most invasive modifications is the engine swap. Here you will find a detailed discussion of this mechanic.

As the game progresses, you will need faster and faster vehicles. Accordingly, you will spend your money on upgrading the cars you own or buying new ones. One of the most invasive car modifications is changing the engine. This is because it enables you to drastically affect the performance of a car. This is an important change, as it causes a leap of several vehicle classes.

The engine swap itself is very simple. All you need to do is to go to the tabs: rides - performance - engines. There you will select the appropriate variant and confirm your choice.

However, you must bear in mind that engine swap is an extremely expensive investment. In addition, it generates additional costs. This is because you have to purchase all the upgrades for the engine from scratch. On the other hand, modifications to chassis and drive components will remain intact.

It is often the case that increasing the class of a vehicle through such a modification will cost more than buying an equally fast new car. So, at first it will be a moderately profitable investment (especially since it will not have the best variants unlocked). Therefore, you can decide to replace the engine in the final phase of the game, when you already have the best vehicles. That's when you can further increase their performance.
