I would definitely get a custom tune- a predator and a CMR tune would be a good option. That'd give you both the custom tune, and the ability to tweak the tune a little yourself, as well as data logging.

If they reflashed your PCM with a new tune when the supercharger was installed, it might be a bad idea to try to use a regular predator on it (i.e. without a custom tune)- I'm almost certain that the predator doesn't make adjustments to your tune based on whatever was on your PCM before, so if you try to load up one of their standard tunes, you'd be running a supercharged vehicle with a tune intended for stock to mildly modified vehicles. That could yield unpredictable, or even dangerous results.
