Becomes available at Car Level 40.

The engine swap upgrade in Forza Motorsport 8 (2023) is unlocked once you car reaches level 40 which requires massive amounts of car XP (CXP). It will likely take you a while to be able to change your vehicle’s default engine so it is recommended to focus on leveling up a small number of your favorite cars instead of constantly buying new ones in the beginning of Career mode.

Benefits of Engine Swap

May increase overall performance (PI).

Engine swaps can result in the car gaining more power (HP) and improved handling which will raise its overall performance (indicated by its Performance Index or PI). Note that changing the engine, however, may also have a negative effect on the vehicle’s torque, weight, and weight distribution so it is recommended to take your car for a test run in Free Play mode to feel out the differences.

Since applying an engine swap drastically change the behavior of your car, you may need to compensate for its drawbacks via tuning. This may be appealing to players who find excitement in constantly customizing their vehicle to achieve the performance and handling that they are most comfortable with.

Engine swap is unlocked individually for each car.

All level-based car upgrades, including engine swap, are only accessible to the specific cars that unlock them at their required levels. You will need to grind XP for other cars if you want to apply the upgrade to them as well.
