Meta Racing’s Upgrade Shift Fork Magnet

Rebuild the Shift Fork Issues in the Mitsubishi EVO X.


In 2008, Mitsubishi unveiled the Evolution X, the final iteration of its renowned Evolution brand. The Lancer Evolution X introduced a 6-speed semi-automatic SST transmission as an optional feature. The Getrag transmission used in the Evolution X is a complex engineering marvel that, in our opinion, necessitates more frequent maintenance than recommended by Mitsubishi. Among the most common issues faced by Evolution X owners are related to the repair and upgrade of these units. Shift Fork failure is among the most prevalent issues, often indicated by fault codes such as P1833, P1879, P1827, P1877, and more. These failures arise due to the installation of a plastic Shift Fork Magnet by Mitsubishi in the EVO X transmission, which is prone to damage during spirited driving.
