I am aware the premature optimization is a danger, but its also 
incorrect to ignore potential performance pitfalls.

I would favor a generator expression here, if only because I think its 
easier to read.  In addition, it properly handles large amounts of data 
by not duplicating the list.  For very long input sequences, genexp 
would be the proper thing to do (assuming you don't need to index into 
results, in which case, its wrong.)

I think the fastest way to solve the OP's problem is the following: ;)

def convert_165_0_to_int(arg):
     return 165
