Chris, think of improving the speed for the benefit of your actual visitors, don't worry about search engine rankings at this point. The speed in itself is only one of over 200 factors in Google's rankings, it is a very small factor, and it apparently only affects a small number of sites.

However, from your own web browsing experience you can tell what impact site speed has on your own web browsing actions. I'm more likely to revisit a faster loading site than a slow one. So I'd say work on the speed to benefit your visitors (don't worry about search engines).
