hiya, twofish runs at just over 25MB/sec when compiled into a test VC++ application, blowfish runs at 18MB/sec.
As far as I remember, if you use the same keylenght (256 or 128) then you should get around the same level of encryption (probably not exact, but if one was that much weaker there'd be a warning on the Mcrypt page).
