Probably beating a dead horse gear question

Just picked up my 15 5.0 and didn't think to look at gears. I have 3.31s. I am wondering in a 1/4 run what do you believe time difference would be between 3.31s and 3.73s?

I would say a lot. One huge part of 1/4 mile is early acceleration. Gears make a big difference in launching. 3.31 are not going to transfer near as much torque as 3.73's.
