Default 2011 48 sprocket change

hey everybody. I'm thinking of changing my front sprocket from a 29 tooth to a 28 tooth on my 2011 48. i am trying to get better off the line acceleration. i would like to know (from some one that has done this) how much of a difference this will make on acceleration, loss of top speed, and mpg's.
