Post ring and pinnion

I have a 1984 Olds Cutlass with a 403 that I am bracket racing. It has a 3:42 rear gear and the engine is turing about 4700 in the 8th. The car runs in the 7.30's now. I would like to go to a better gear for getting off the line and ET. but I don't I don,t want to turn the engine over 5500 RPM. I am thinking about going to a 3:90 gear. Would this be too much for what I want? Thanks
