Please dont do any crazy mods to your camel truck! Keep it subtle if you must mod it.

Either way, an OD will not make your truck faster. Your speed limitation is power and air resistance. The new 6 speed won't help either. Try one of the variable nozzle turbo kits from Allard - that will definitely up your power.

As far as noise goes, make sure you've got the latest full rubber matting for the seat box, foot wells, and bulkhead. Its very heavy and helps a great deal. I dont think RN sells it.
