I Jason,
Grab a copy of Coffeecup's Website Insight and scan your site. It will give you most of the info you need on issues with your site.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Yea the Website Insight will be a valuable tool for you. Other thoughts:

Compress Images
Watch how main scripts you have running on your page
Avoid large image galleries, if you use them make sure they are compressed
Enable Caching
Make sure you have clean code: If you use SD5 you are set there.
Avoid page redirects
