lowering gear ratio

i got a 76 gmc sprint sp (el camino ss) with a tweaked 400, th350c, and around 2.80 open rear end. i want to change the rear gear to a 3.73 posi. i was wondering if someone could give an estimate on how much time this could cut off my an e.t. in the 1/8, and if ill really feel alot more jump out of it when i get on it?
