You should be able to tell if you take the stock setup off and compare.
    My GTi180 (Jan 2004 build) had the early type mechanism - with the large metal lump on it as per the RC Shift, not the BE4X one.

    Good to know. My two must be a late 04 build then, they both have the BE4X type.

    So, picked the car up Saturday evening & it’s very enjoyable to drive. Very similar to when I had an XR4 although the PUG doesn’t feel as solid (think it may be an age thing) it feels like it’s a bit faster.

    First issue, driven it for about 60km & an engine light popped up with anti pollution filter error. Car seems relatively the same driving it, will scan it when I get a chance but searching this term doesn’t fill me with confidence...

    Anti pollution is catch all fault for anything on the engine from intake to exhaust, coilpacks, throttle body, O2 sensors etc.
    scanning it on OBD or even better the peugeot tool will get you closer to the issue.
    One very common issue is low battery. They hate that.

    Ok that makes a bit of sense now then. The car had a cat back exhaust & CAI on it that was changed over just before I collected it. I am assuming now that the ECU is struggling to readjust to the changes but will still have everything looked into this week when I can get our mechanic onto it. Will be going over everything with a fine tooth comb anyway & will change the battery over just in case as doesn't look brand new. Will get a build thread going hopefully before I head over to the UK, if not will setup when I am back mid-September.

    Hey fellas

    Thought I would provide you an update on how things have progressed since my last post as it has been almost 8 weeks... A lot of work has gone into the car already with still a lot more to come over the coming weeks. Car has been checked over completely, fully stripped out & cage has started going in, all airbags have been removed, brakes have been changed over, EGR valve has been blocked off, C5 wheels cleaned up & painted satin black which will have TOYO R888Rs on them very shortly, racing seats with harnesses, race steering wheel, oil catch can, probably a lot more. I have setup our website & all social media sites where you can follow us (very basic at the moment). Images are on the website also. www.nonameracing.net

    We have the interior for sale as well (seats, door cards, parcel shelf) all in great condition if anybody is interested.

    Sounds good.
    If you're not changing the intake manifold, forget the catch can and retain the stock PCV system.
    PCV setup is a pain in these and the factory setup works fine.
    The EGR you mention is actually a cold air injection for emissions at start up. Fine to remove, and theres a heavy blower motor at the back of the airbox, in the wheel arch you can remove too.

    I also have the newer style short shifter that SG has on my 180 which I daily, it’s been a great addition to the feel of shifts.
    Everything feels much more solid and direct over the stock linkage.

    It is worth making sure which year gear box you have as both mine and my old man’s 180s are 2004 models but he has the older style short shifter and mine has the later “2005” marked unit.
    Either are pretty straight forward to install.

    Speaks geek,

    "180 is geared way too high for the power it has at most tracks. You'll be lucky to get out of 4th except on the longest straights."
    I bought one the other day and drove it back on the dirt road, well that was interesting.
    The ride is very harsh and jolty whereas the 206 GTI deals with dirt roads well.
    As you say the gearing is very high!
    Not sure what has been done to my one but it goes like a cut cat , torque steers.
    Impressive car , great seats, no dash lights on and it runs perfectly.
