If you want to upgrade the engine on your car first open the main menu and then select Cars. Then select the Buy New & Used Cars option.

Otherwise, accept the fast travel notification to head to the garage. Once you’re in that menu select the Garage option and then select Upgrades and Tuning.

This will open the Upgrades and Tuning screens. Now here you can select to upgrade your vehicle. There’s two methods here. Automatic and manual.
