If you want a "transparent" OD pedal (like you don't know if it's on and never have to turn it off), I'd install a PowerScaling on the amp and tweak the volume and Power Scaling level to get the desired OD/Dist levels. For a less evasive method, I'd put an attenuator on you amp and turn up the volume on the amp.
After doing one of the above, you can use a clean booster like RC Booster to smack the frontend of the amp a little more to get additional OD.
