Your Pyrocat-HD Delta 100 negatives should be noticeably grainier than Delta 100 in XTOL 1+1. Delta 100 "graininess" should be similar to, maybe slightly finer than TMY2. With XTOL 1+1, Delta 100 rated at EI 64-80 and developed for 9 minutes at 68F should give an excellent normal contrast negative (60 seconds initial agitation followed by 10 seconds each minute).
Regarding the famous XTOL death syndrome (which I never experienced), Kodak eventually traced it to the 1L packets being faulty, which is why unfortunately it is only available in 5L packets now.
