EVO VIII and the american EVO are different...

The wing is an option to, but personally i'd get it on that car.

It maybe among the "fastest" here but I don't think its the "quickest". There is a big difference between the two.

Obviously, I'm not going to slam on a Mitsubishi But isn't the rice here not so much the vehicle itself as the silly fin?

Rice is making any car, whether import or domestic, look fast but has no go. An Evo has hood scoops, air dams, wings but they are ALL functional and it actually has some form of speed. Is the one on a Bonneville even functional as to reduce .cd of drag or even create high speed downforce? Not only that, but the 4g63 engine isn't even stressed at its current HP ratings. The wing is optional so it can be deleted.

I think the main difference between the US Evo and the JDM Evo 8 is the JDM'* use of an active center differential.
