What do you think is the best way to protect the F1 Pump? As many know, the F1 Pump Relay is prone to failure. I believe this is because the F1 pump occasionally calls for more power than the 30A relay can reliably provide. The relay eventually wears out, causing the expensive F1 pump to run continuously until it overheats. Some of those with F1 transmissions will replace the relay prophylactically every other year or so (cost about $8US). It’s an easy replacement. Another option, as described by Aldous Voice (aka “voicey”), replaces the regular 30 amp relay with a 50 amp Challenge Stradale relay and socket (cost about $25US) https://aldousvoice.com/2015/10/15/ferrari-360-f1-relay-upgrade. Not only can this relay handle more power, it switches .5 ms faster. This is a relatively easy and inexpensive solution, though it requires rewiring of a relay socket. I haven’t read any first-hand accounts of those who have done so. One final option I'm aware of is purchasing and installing the Scud Ing Swiss “Smart EMT F1 Relay ECU” (about $235US) https://www.scuding.com/Shop/en/ecu-solutions/101-smart-emt-relay-ecu.html. Scud Ing Swill claims improved performance and reliability with this solid state device over a mechanical relay. They assert that mechanical relays can be harmful to the TCU due to power spikes, with a 50A relay potentially more dangerous than a 30A, but their solution is safer for the TCU, provides variable power up to 250A according to the demands of the pump, and is quicker. It is also plug and play, plugging directly the 30A relay without any rewiring. I have read a couple first-hand accounts about this device, all of them positive. So, I request that those who have used one of these three options chime in with your experiences and recommendations for saving the F1 pump.
