Performance Parts featured in Need for Speed: Most Wanted are utilised to improve the top speed, acceleration and handling of a car. The Engine, Transmission, Suspension, Nitrous, Tyres, Brakes and Turbo Charger or Supercharger of a car can be upgraded.

Each performance part category is also divided into upgrade packages. Each package offers greater performance gains for a car but some vehicles can not be equipped with certain lower level packages. The upgraded levels are Race, Pro, Super Pro and Ultimate.

Junkman parts permanently raise a performance aspect and can be stacked with any upgrade package. They can be unlocked by selecting the "Unique Performance Upgrade" marker upon defeating a Blacklist racer. They can be unlocked for usage in My Cars by completing the Burger King Challenge event in the Challenge Series.

Players can make individual adjustments to various aspects of their car's performance by accessing the Performance Tuning window from the pause menu during freeroam gameplay.
