Default Swapped in 6 speed and center diff is bad?

Hey guys, I have been searching and searching for postings that can possibly tell me what's going on with this transmission and I have found nothing. I swapped an 04 STI 6spd with R180 and front axles into my 03 bugeye. I used the STI flywheel and bought a Competition Clutch OEM replacement for the STI. I finished the swap late last night, started her up, and when I let out the clutch the car barely moves forward at all, and if I really rev it up it starts to make a slight grinding noise like when you have a bad synchro. I didn't wire up the dccd because this was a swap that came out of an 02 wagon without a dccd, the previous owner claimed that he had driven this setup without a controller for years, so my question is, am I completely screwed with this 6spd? Or will getting an aftermarket dccd setup fix this issue? Thanks!!
