Am I going to see a big difference in my beer? Trying to see if the seller from Ebay will swap it out. Any replies would be greatly appreciated!

You would need a truly prodigious amount of 5/16" ID line to tame pretty much any brew. Even if you can't exchange it, the aggravation factor would be so high it'd be better to chuck it and just buy the right (3/16" ID) size line...

Cheers!
