Depending on which Evo block and gearbox he's getting, there's a chance there's an LSD in there somewhere.

the brakes have been upgraded to 8 pot fronts with 365mm discs and rear has 6 pot piston brakes.these are the highest spec brakes that are available for the evo. the lsd issue played on my mind for a long time as for lsd i have done extensive research driven many evos in UK and dubai and also got advise from my tuner in the UK that lsd is not required at all unless the car is going to be driven hard on track and to confirm this i was usung a 580 awhp evo in dubai with stock brakes suspension and no lsd and it was coping just fine in fact it even kept neck to neck with a slr mclaren. so for the moment im running the stock evo differential.however in the extreme case that i feel i have to have an lsd then i might opt for a 1.5 way front lsd which will be more than ample.the thing guys with evos is that its like pimp my ride one can go on forever as there is no shortage of parts available.why lsd? as important is the fueling i should get an external fuel cell with an external fuel pump and 5 litre fuel swirl pot it would be good but can be done without .but in reality one must choose parts that have value for money and give most bang for your buck.but just for information the evo has 3 lsd's front center and rear the whole package is about $10k which is ludacrisly priced and totally not required even the evo race cars are not running such setups but its available so like i said parts have to be tried tested and then bought which i somewhat did.
i have not had the chance to get some good quality photos but will do that asap but for the moment have some pics from my phone

Amazing stuff definitely... since you have swapped out the tail lamps, why dont u also switch the headlight to the twin beam style (like in the invecs) in either stock chrome or black. Im sure itll suit the car more. Except for the spoiler the exterior looks pure evo 5.

Amazing work Gemballa!! Kindly take better pics though, these ones are sorta blurry and you cant really appreciate the exterior work done!, maybe a video with an exhaust note of it rippin on the streets would be great! congrats on a job well done!
