Default make my v6 faster

okay guys i have couple of things i need help on.
so let me know what yall know about these problems.

first of all, i had stock 20s on my truck and changed them to 17s
with low tires. After i changed them i noticed the mph changed.
today i got besides my friend going a constant speed (60 mph) but mine was reading 70. i read once you change the size the mph will change also.
the thing i want to know how to calibrate it back to its normal speed.

second also when i changed the tires the rpm got a lot quicker but not quick enough, what can i put into the truck to make it faster, but wont make it sound like a dirt bike lol

also i need the governor out, do yall know any good tune kits i can get so it wont cut off at 105 mph.

fyi, rip mods makes a super charger for your engine. that should get the revs up where you want them very quickly.

It looks like the V6 already has a built in CAI with the air box getting air from above the passenger front tire. There is a small plastic flap that reduces air flow and also stop debris from entering the system (that is my guess) With a K&N filter, could you also drill small holes above the front right tire to allow more air floor?

the flap is probably to increase air speed in the intake from more low speed torque which the 3.6 needs. I am going to insulate the intake with some reflectiv insulation to keep the air incoming colder. that should also build a little more low speed torque, expecially with a K&N filter.
