Performance Parts in Need for Speed: Payback are used to improve the performance level and ratings of cars.

Parts can be acquired from Speed Cards which can be purchased from Tune-Up-Shops. They are also awarded for completing events, opening Shipments (NFSPB Shipments Base IconNFSPB Shipments Premium Icon), and from a roll through the Trade-In section of a Tune-Up-Shop using Part Tokens (NFSPB PartToken Icon).

NFSPB PerformancePart ArticleExample
A performance part is represented as a Speed Card that highlights four aspects that alter the performance ratings of a vehicle;
  • Rating (2); a quality value with 1 being the lowest and 18 being the highest.
  • Part (NFSPB Icons Block Perforrmance); Head, Block, ECU, Turbo, Exhaust, or Transmission.
  • Brand (NFSPB BrandAmericana Icon); Americana, Carbon, Chidori, Nextech, or Outlaw.
  • Perks (NFSPB Icons Airtime PerkNFSPB Icons Nitro PerkNFSPB Icons Speed Perk); Acceleration, Brakes, Jump, Nitrous, or Speed.

Owned performance parts are retained on a per vehicle basis and cannot be exchanged between vehicles. They can, however, be sold for Bank (NFSPB BankYellow Icon) at any player owned garage or Tune-Up-Shop, or can be traded in for Part Tokens (NFSPB PartToken Icon) at a player owned garage or Tune-Up-Shop.

Parts

Each vehicle has six parts that can be swapped and upgraded with better performing parts. Higher rated parts offer greater improvements to a vehicle's horsepower and top speed ratings within Speed, as well as the 0 - 60 mph and 1/4 mile times within Acceleration.

Head

NFSPB Icons Head Perforrmance
Cylinder head upgrades can change the size and design of the parts which define the volume of air and fuel that can flow to the combustion chamber. Better airflow is key in allowing the engine to create additional power.


Block

NFSPB Icons Block Perforrmance
The engine block is the foundation of an internal combustion engine. Upgrading this is a good way to increase the engine's durability so it can handle more power.


ECU

NFSPB Icons ECU Perforrmance
An aftermarket electrical control unit (ECU) will provide cohesion to all installed components of the engine. The brains of a car; this will make sure all elements work together increasing efficiency and maximising output.


Turbo

NFSPB Icons Turbo Perforrmance
Forced Induction comes in many forms; a supercharger will be most noticeable at lower RPM's unlike a turbocharger that tends to provide less boost until the engine is running at higher RPM's. In all cases though, installing or upgrading a forced induction item will give the engine an increase in torque providing faster acceleration.


Exhaust

NFSPB Icons Exhaust Perforrmance
Exhaust gasses travel through the exhaust system as they exit the engine. A less restrictive exhaust can wake up the engine and provide extra flow.


Transmission

NFSPB Icons Transmission Perforrmance
Transmission allows for the regulation and control of a vehicle's power from its engine to its wheels. The transmission can include the clutch, drivetrain, gearbox, gear ratios, and differential.


Brands

Brands of parts can be collected and equipped to the same vehicle to create additional performance perks.

There are five brands available and each can be matched together to create a Brand Bonus that offers a performance rating improvement to specific categories per brand. Matching can be done with either six parts by a single brand or six parts with three of each by two different brands.

  • A 3x Brand Bonus adds nearly a single perk's worth of improvements to brand specific ratings without requiring any free perk slots per category.
  • A 6x Brand Bonus adds two and a half perks' worth of improvements to brand specific ratings without requiring any free perk slots per category.
