New smart relay from www.scuding.com. Taken out of a 2008 Gallardo Spyder after I converted it to gated manual.

This will prevent failure of your e-gear pump due to excessive cycling and/or mechanical failure of the OEM relay.

Originally $250, and will sacrifice for $99.00.

Details from Scuding website:

THIS PLUG & PLAY PURE ELECTRONIC SOLID STATE SMART EMT F1 RELAY ECU IS A DIRECT REPLACEMENT OF THE OEM MECHANICAL RELAY WHICH CAN FAIL AND DAMAGE THE E-GEAR PUMP.


WITH EMBEDDED SOFTWARE, THIS ECU WILL GREATLY IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE & RELIABILITY OF YOUR HYDRAULIC SYSTEM.


When so many expensive parts are put at risk because of a simple relay sitting in the middle between the TCU and the hydraulic system, we started to design and develop a smart 100% electronic solution which eliminates entirely such risks. After many prototypes and lots of intensive R&D during more than 1 year, we are proud to say that we've created the perfect reliable solution that we should all install on our EMT or F1 cars to avoid seriously costly repair bills of hydraulic system failures which could have been avoided with our solution. When we say 100% electronic, it means that we eliminate entirely any mechanical moving parts, magnet coils or mechanically switched contacts. Our Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU is a real smart digital solid-state micro-processor based ECU, running our complex firmware, which can instantly switch currents as high as 250A without any heating, sparks, interference, transients or delays! This solution integrates so many electronic protections that it will last forever and is indestructible.
Unlike the electromagnetic relay which is a very simple on/off switch, the Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU powers the hydraulic pump motor in a smart way and provides also the maximum inrush current required to power up the pump motor instantly. It's a specialized digital motor powering device which can deliver up to 250A in the first 5 micro-secs to power up instantly the pump motor at it's max rpm. As a result, the pump motor has instantly all the required torque to drive the hydraulic pump, thus shortening considerably the time needed to build up the pressure from 41 bar to 52 bar. With the Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU, this is done in less than 2 secs, usually 1.5s, something impossible with a dummy switching relay even new. With the hydraulic pressure been much quicker available for the F1 or equivalent (and the very pressure consuming E-DIFF on the F430), it does make the F1 perform at it's best capacities. As a result, this will also considerably prolong the lifetime of the pump motor and pump head while allowing it to run in a much more efficient way and thus provide ideal hydraulic performances. The electromagnetic relay is the main cause of pump motor failures because such motors aren't powered in the right way with such simple relays. How often you replace these relays or whatever their current rating is, isn't going to help neither. This well known issue exists on all cars using a hydraulic system and that's why automated manual transmissions are so much disliked as it always leads to expensive repairs.
In addition to safe and reliable high current switching, the Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU - Advanced Version integrates also an early warning system which will inform you when your hydraulic system start to require more time to build up the pressure than usual. By offering more visibility on how the hydraulic pump performs, fatal EMT hydraulic system failures can be prevented which can leave you stranded on the road with costly repair bills. Hydraulic pressure loss is often caused by very small hydraulic leaks (worn gaskets, solenoid leakage or lose bleed nipples), air bubbles or hydraulic oil degradation due to air contamination, but it can also hide some more serious upcoming issues like diaphragm/piston hydraulic accumulator failures. Part of the early warning system is our pump cycles diagnostic system which will analyze how often and how long the pump is running. If the pump needs to run too frequently with little rest times between the cycles, it certainly indicates that there is an issue with the hydraulic system. We've seen that often owners just replace their pump motor, or even worst replace the relay and fuse with higher current specs, hoping to resolve such issues instead of fixing the hydraulic system root cause failures. If the hydraulic system is operating correctly, it's not necessary to change the OEM pump motor which will last the life time of the car. Although, when the pump is cycling let say every 10 secs, and/or runs for each cycle more than 15secs, it will keep burning up pump motors and eventually it will end up damaging the hydraulic actuator requiring its replacement (prepare your check book!). Fortunately, our ECU may prevent such catastrophic situations by warning you when the hydraulic pump starts to cycle too frequently or too long.

The Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU will always attempt to protect the hydraulic system and will even shutdown the pump motor if it was running for too long time. For instance, if the pump can't build up the hydraulic pressure after 30 secs, the Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU will shut it down to prevent the pump to burn out and/or damage the hydraulic actuator parts. Often ignored, the hydraulic accumulator is a maintenance part and accumulator failures like a sticky diaphragm will also make your pump cycling endlessly, just like shorted relay contacts!

The Smart current sensing system of the Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU will constantly check the power consumption of the hydraulic pump motor. The current consumption of a failing pump motor or pump head will start to vary considerably indicating that the electric pump motor will completely fail over time. The ECU has a complex learning process which will learn your usual pump power consumption and will alert any important pump current variations. The ECU will also alert if the pump drains an unusual low level of current or no current at all (complete failing pump motor).

The Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU is also aware when the hydraulic system requires more time to build up the hydraulic pressure. This happens when for instance the car has been parked overnight making the pressure to drop to its minimum level. In this case, the Smart eMT F1 Relay ECU will detect it and will allow a longer run of the pump.

Kinda interested just need to research it.

First time seeing this or hearing about any issues with this part.

Just glancing over their site. Which version are u selling?

Basic or advanced version with extensions

Basic version because I wanted something simple to replace the crappy unreliable OEM mechanical relay. I would have kept this smart relay if I still had e-gear.

Goddamnit, LITERALLY just bought one full retail
That sucks... sorry to hear that, but at least now you don’t have to worry about burning up your pump anymore!

I'll take it for $99. PM me the payment details. I hope PayPal suits.

On its way. You will love the peace of mind it gives you. PM me with any questions. I sent all of the installation instructions too... super easy.
