I have been souping Tmax 100 in HC-1110 dilution B for 
years and it's great!
I process @ 68 and pull back the time 30 sec.
Negatives print out without a hitch on my Focomat IIc

On the other hand I think Tmax 400 just plain sucks. The 
only thing it's got is fine grain,. It has no 
latitude,contrat is poor,poor toe, over exposure is death 
to the film. If the highlights are burned out it will 
never print right.
My favorite 400 film is Ilforf HP5 plus . It's truley an 
enhanced Tri-x. It still has the wonderfull sparkle and 
contrast of Tri-x and terrific latutude. It also has finer 
grain and shrapness than Tr-x. I soup it in Ilfotec
