Seems the timing  code is taking up most of the time, or the reg/mem moves are as fast as nothing or a single nop.

later I tried 100 nop's and the 100 nop's were faster than nothing. No extra alignment, same code otherwise.
I'm not always the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I have my moments.  :P
