I would bet that over would give you a slightly longer delay time.

With the delay pot, the closest to 100k i have is a 97k and a 103k.  Is it better to be 3k over or under? 
Probably wont be a noticeable difference but yes 103k would give you a slightly longer delay time, but is your 240pF cap exactly 240pF and your 5k6 resistor exactly 5k6? They all play a part in the delay time.

The only issue that could arise is whine at higher delay times but that probably wont happen.

Go for either!

Either would be fine.
