i have some web services that return fairly large data sets (~10K of xml) which at present takes 2 seconds between the request being made by a client and the reply be received - does anyone have a feel for how this will be impacted if i introduce ssl?

Most likely there will not be a noticeable impact. 10KB is not really a large amount of data.
