I have 97 E50 AMG with a removed speed limiter. Top speed is about 285 km/h (that's around 175 mph). I have read that changing the final ratio will take the top speed limit to 305 kmh (190 mph). Does anyone know the right ratio and where is it sold?

If gearing is correct, a very good approximation is that top speed increases with third squar-root of the engine power (pure physics). <br>
<br>
Using E320 (fastest E-class without limted top speed) as a reference (221hp/235 km/h), 347 hp would give a theoretical top-speed of 273 km/h , which very well could match 285 on speedo. <br>
<br>
I´m not sure if the AMG wider tyres + aero kit gives total higher or lower drag, but for sure 305km/h is not possible with custom engine, no matter what gearing you choose. <br>
<br>
<br>
With 2,82 final ratio (= E50 original), 5500 rpm (=rpm at max power) in 5th gear is somewhere around 280 - 285 km/h which means that as long as you car don´t run any faster than this, a longer gear-ratio will for sure not help your top-speed.

One more thing...

Did you try the top-speed on the diagnostic mode on the AC? It is probably more exact than speedo.<br> Press 'Rest' for 5 seconds, then go through the menues by pressing driver side 'auto' until you reach menue 21 (I think). See also topic in W210 forum.<br> <br> I just found out about it so I did not have a chance to check it top-speed according to AC yet, but on my E430T 180km/h speedo is 173 km/h on the AC.

I have also same problem with my e320 1996, overdrive switch(D4) is also not working but there is no problem in upshifting when downshifting from 90-30 km, and then when i m pressing accelerator again it gives a jerk, i hav changed gear oil + gasket + filter again after 15000 km, PAN is very cleaned,(no metal particles)
and had also changed my Mass air sensor before 15000km,
CHANGED MAF+A/T OIL+GASKET+FILTER AT 90,000 KM
CHANGED AGAIN A/T OIL+GASKET+FILTER AFTER THIS PROBLEM AT 1,10,000 KM
CURRENT KILOMETERS ARE 1,10,560 KM
I DID'NT CONFERN WITH ANY MECHANIC YET.
PLZ HELP ME REGARDING THIS PROBLEM, IS MY TRANSMISSION GOING WEAKER,(pan is clean) OR SOME OTHER PROBLEM, ITS HAS 5 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
