One fast Yaris

Allegedly, this Yaris sedan from Puerto Rico has a Celica GT-S 2ZZ-GE engine swap, making it a lot faster than a standard 1.5-liter Yaris. Want proof? Here's a video.

Yaris 2zz - 13.18@92mph vs Civic - 10.90@132mph

Although I haven't been able to find any photos of the actual engine in the bay, 13.18 seconds is about four seconds faster than a typical Yaris in the quarter mile.

That is THE classic sleeper- plain white 4-door, nothing done to the body (are those stock wheels with the covers off? I couldn't fullscreen so can't tell), stuffed FULL of motor!

Indeed -- I love sleepers, and this one (other than the sound) is pretty "sleepy."
