Yes the Mercedes 5 speed isn't very strong for a superturbodiesel but then again he will only run stock power,only 330 Nm of torque so IMHO it will do fine. But then again I could be wrong.

The 603 is an Ok engine but a 606 is better, the 603 has cylinder head issues in the early 3.0 engines, and the 3.5 is a terrible rod bender.
As far as the pump is concerned any older mechanical pump from a 603, doesn't matter if from 3.0 or 3.5 liter engine. Also you could use a pump from a W124 E300D with the 606 since those were mechanical.
Have a shop swap the elements from the electronic 606 pump into it and adjust for stock electronic fuel.
For gauges if you have it set up for stock fuel then you'll only need a boost gauge to adjust the boost to stock level. But having an EGT gauge can't hurt.
