First the op was worried about the “crud” on the bottom of the tank. When informed that the pump sucks from the bottom, he is now worried about the crud floating on top. Maybe he should ride a bike.

Back to the op's original post. A dry hop after the burnout does nothing but give the drivetrain added stress. Save it for the launch.

Take it to the track and see what the trap speed is. That will give you an indication of how much power you are making. I would trust a time slip before a dyno.

At some NHRA tracks (Sonoma Raceway for one), GTO spares are no longer allowed. They were not intended for high speed use. A friend of mine got booted for using a set on a C7Z.
