  Basically if those parts "aren't broke, don't fix them."  :-)  Nothing 
really to rebuild in the pump if it doesn't have a problem, same with 
the turbo.  If it turns and doesn't burn oil...  For the wategate just 
pull the exhaust off and look at it, work it a couple times.  If the 
flapper is solidly attached and it works freely, it's good.  
  Having the injectors pop tested wouldn't hurt but really none of 
those are likely to leave you stranded if they did have issues.

  With a 1.9 TD I'd consider doing a 3" exhaust over a 2.5"  It 
should be reasonably quiet just with having a turbo.  If you do 
want it quieter then put a silencer in front of the muffler like 
several of the Audi/VW cars have.
