you need a dccd diff to make any use of a diff controller.

Your car doesn't come with a DCCD diff.

You will require a factory part, called a DCCD diff, before you can control it electronically.

^^^ Then after you spend all that money you'll ask yourself "why did I spend all that money, my car is no different to drive"

Seriously, spend a grand (or less) on a plate rear diff and forget about the DCCD centre unless you do autokhana and want to handbrake everywhere.

Unfortunately its not as simple as just installing a DCCD Unit into a normal 6 speed.

If you really want DCCD in a 6 speed. Easiest way is to buy a DCCD 6 speed and then sell your VCD 6 Speed. Cost around $1K + labour for the gearbox swap + controller in the end.

DCCD is a nice thing to have, but you are better off getting a Plated rear diff first. A Plated Diff is kind of needed anyway to make the most of DCCD. So get the plated rear LSD and then decide if you want DCCD.

That's a myth. DCCD does not make the car switchable to RWD.
It can make more rear torque bias than a VCD, but it's not like the GT-R Skyline's system where you can do burnouts etc.

I am of the understanding that plated rear diffs cannot be rebuilt.

the opposite, plated diffs need to be rebuilt often!
