from what i remember when i compared the 2 formulas the universal and 130 were very close ..
130 won't let you down, it can be a bit contrasty depending on the lighting and situation, but you can do a test roll and figure out
how to agitate it, or dilute it to suit your needs ... i usually do 1:10 @72º for about 8.5 mins ( sometimes more concentrated, sometimes less im not too careful )
and the negatives a nice snappy look to them.
like with everything, suggested dilutions and times are a starting point, you need to tweek things to suite your needs
have fun !
