Those are not current numbers but I believe its actually faster now. :) One thing that has been mentioned by the developers that I have read is some of the performance tweaks are intended for larger forums and may actually slow down smaller ones.
I'm wondering if I'm going to trim the code in viewtopic.php and index.php and shed more unnecessary footers and headers info, avoid loading the database to show something like the number of posts a user submit, will it boost the performance further?
Still struggling with Punbb and Phpbb.... The trouble with punbb is that it cuts too many functions, some of them like PM are quite useful. Although they have a mod for current version, I worry about the future upgrade.

If you open config.php you'll find these two lines at the bottom:
