Look at the back, those are clutch plates (Active Center Diff). Don't get confused by the gears those are not the center diff. Front diff and drive shaft are the gears.

Manual. The 50:50 split and viscous coupling center differential is a more rugged (metal plates and hardening fluid) and performance oriented system. The Evo 8 had a viscous coupling center prior to the current ACD.
