'13 Evo MR first SST ownership woes

My roomie finally bit took the plunge and bought his 'dream car' and of course we were all excited. A '13 Evo MR, dark blue, 52k on the clock, all stock. Pretty sweet!
I think he had it for about 3 weeks, and then yesterday (Friday the 13th!!) he stopped at a stop sign, check engine light popped on, threw the dreaded P1833 code and loss of even gears. I was helping him out with some google-fu and I see what we're up against is probably nothing more than a darn piece of plastic/magnets that came unglued from the shift fork.
I can't help but let out a sigh, and after reading a ton of threads with people who've had the same experience. I think I even saw one thread at 16k! But certainly a ton around the 60k mark.
What started out as an exciting dive into the world of dual clutch transmissions (my GF had one in her Mini S.. but we don't talk about those, LOL) looks like it's going to be frustrating!
I've been researching a ton, and am on the fence about tackling the actual trans rebuild myself. Looks 'simple' if you have all the information you need, but certainly nothing like a 700R4 or a T5 gearbox..
I'm leaning towards the idea of sending it out to a professional. I'm in central WI and I've seen Jacks Transmissions online touting a pretty good resume' for SST rebuilds. Also those folks in Australia who have some invaluable videos on youtube, but I don't forsee sending a trans overseas!
Anywho, just looking for advice from others who may have gone through this same frustration, and recommendations on shops/companies to work with for the rebuild to make sure this thing doesn't fail again in another 52k.


Cheers.

Shep in Ohio. He does a great job and he rebuilds 3000 whp GTR transmissions. Shep has supported and build SST transmissions from the beginning and supports the DSM Shootout every year in Norwalk Ohio with Buscher Racing. Great company that does great work and close to WI.

I had this problem with my '14 earlier this year at 65k. Mitsu knew what they were doing with the 60k powertrain warranty. They know how long that glue lasts on the shift forks.

I sent mine to Jack's. I considered using Shep, but I'm in California and Jack's was closer. I've put 8k on it since getting it back from Jack's. It works great but things feel different at certain times and it makes me nervous because we all know how freaking sensitive the SST can be. I'd still recommend Jack's. Check out their website; lots of details and answers to your questions there. It'll run you about $5k.

Your fork 4 magnet likely has come loose and is likely moving around. Trans needs to come apart to fix this. It is a fairly common failure.

What did you have done to the transmission? Any aftermarket parts? Iíll have to do mine eventually
