I think we have enough info here to do some tests... thanks to everyone that posted. The idea is to just get some basic info on how much of an impact plugins can have on a site. A lot of the plugins listed I'm not able to test due to the number of variables involved such as blog posts, comments, other plugins, etc. I have finished running tests for a base WP install along with a couple plugins and will post those results in the coming days.
