Tom's 1.8-liter swapped Yaris has appeared on The Smoking Tire's One Take segment with Matt Farah behind the wheel. Additionally, the car and video appeared on Road and Track.
Matt pilots the Corolla-swapped sedan through some canyons in California and seems to really dig the car. (Tom said Matt legitimately enjoyed the car, and I'd believe it.) Tom's swapped Yaris looks like it rips, even with the automatic.
The Yaris is a capable platform, and always has been. However, there haven't been that many people in the U.S. that take advantage of it. (I love mine.) There are parts out there for them, and it doesn't take much to turn the little economy car into a subcompact sleeper.
