Will hiding fields in Marketo speed up SFDC sync?

We are merging two Marketo and Salesforce instances, and will have very long sync times since our total database is over a million contacts. Sync times are already increasing, so I've begun looking into ways we might clean up the newly merged instance post-merge.


We have almost 1,000 fields. If I hide many of these, will it speed up sync? Does Marketo still sync the data even though the field is hidden?


There are some great resources on instance clean up and speeding up sync but I haven't found an answer to this question.
