! Try the tranny relearn procedure.
2 R&R and lube the clutch actuator
3 R&R and clean the shift motors, change the tranny fluid too! Lots of info here and at Evilution.

Shift actuator under car, easy access from below. Pair of ramps make is quite easy.
Shift motors on top of motor, below the air intake box, which has to be removed to gain access.
Air box is a pain, I had to cut mine to get it out, which was OK as I trashed it for the Madness air intake pipe instead.
