You would be better of with the correct transmisson. It CAN fit but will take mods of course. There are some Finns who put a 606 in there.

Yes, it will fit with some custom engine mounts.
No, it won't mate up to the W123 manuals. You would have to use one from a W201 or W124.

If you are serious about performance, automatic is the way to go. The saying around Dodge/Ford/GM diesel pickups is automatic for playing, manual for real life.
