Rear gear selection help

I have a 32 3 window and want to change out the rear gear. It presently has a 4:11, which is far to low for me, I cant drive much over 65 without the engine reving a bit too much for extended drives. Here are my specs;

350 Chevy, 2x4s aggressive cam(Voodoo 540 lift) p1 GM angle plug head. About 370HP
Built 350 turbo, 2400 stall
Rear- Ford 9 in trac-lock 4:11 gear

I am thinking about dropping to a 3:50 ratio, but am looking for some real world advice.
Thanks all!

If you do a lot of extended driving, You might think about putting 3.25s in it.
