We told you about Armstrong Racing's 2ZR-FE-powered Yaris back in February. However, since then, there's been a host of updates and upgrades.
Firstly, owner, Tom Armstrong, has been doing a lot more SCCA Solo II autocross. He's been doing pretty darn well, too. This includes a recent first-place in Street Modified (SMF) on April 17. That makes five races with four wins, plus a third-place on the National Tour. He's now got a strong lead in the overall regional SMF category. But that's not all that Tom's been up to.
The swapped Yaris got a custom long-tube header from RPM Headers and it is, if I do say so, pretty sexy. Now that it's installed, he's looking to hit the dyno to see what kind of numbers it's going to put down.

But that's not all. Tom and his Yaris were recently featured on Apex Junky, and are going to be featured on The Smoking Tire in the "One Take" section. Tom said the first 2ZR-FE-swapped Yaris he worked on was at the video shoot as well.
Tom and his Toyota are making a name for themselves with this swapped Yaris, and we're thrilled to see it happen. Keep up with him and his car on the Armstrong Racing Facebook page.
