300ce Transmission Upgrade

Does anyone know of a transmission upgrade for a 1991 300CE Coupe which would require little or no fabrication. My 300ce requires 3100rpm to achieve 70mph so I assume it has no overdrive. Is this normal? Would a newer transmission upgrade be possible which would improve my fuel efficiency?

This is normal for W124.

Mercedes FINALLY went to lower highway gearing with the 5-speed auto in the W210.

You should get a W210 or W208 or W209 because you can't put the 5-speed in your car for less than it would cost you to trade cars.
