ESS or VF Supercharger Owners - Tune Question

I'm curious whether anyone of you have added a piggy back tune on top of the ESS/VF flash tune that comes with the supercharger kits. I haven't decided on whether I'm going with an ESS or VF kit yet, however, no matter what kit I decide upon, I would like to stack a Procede on top of the ESS/VF flash in order to control meth injection and to also take advantage of the Procede's traction control feature (which is fantastic on my 335).

So...I got to thinking...why couldn't the Procede also "fine tune" a meth-only map? I have seen Drew's dyno where meth injection made ~ 10 to 15 more WHP. But the ESS/VF tunes aren't specifically designed with meth in mind. Sure they compensate for lower IAT's and higher effective octane, however there could be quite a bit power left on the table.
