Does selecting FwdFast when setting up an IP Rule cause my data to move any faster than if I select Allow?

No, selecting FwdFast for your IP Rule is not any faster than Allow.

What FwdFast does is immediately forward a given packet, bypassing the stateful inspection engine. This is indeed faster for the individual packet. However, since there is no state information regarding the connection the ruleset has to be consulted for each and every packet. This consumes more CPU time than state table lookups for established connections.
