Try the default tunes first, they are great. I have found that i like sm2 transtune the best. Locks in 5th @ 55 mph. II ran the 300 for a day, to much without studs and a transmision. If the black max is like the mini it came with the sm1 trans tune.

I would also run the tunes that are on it, you can always change later if you feel the need.

i would run the standard tunes first, so you can build a reference point to get a feel for what you like best..... the highest hp tune is not necessarily the tune you will like best....i have gone back and forth from the hot and hot damn tunes
