Default Oz tune on 2018 roush sc

hi guys, I know a bunch of us got the roush sc when it came out last summer. Iíve been thrilled with the kit, and bought it for the ďwarrantyĒ, so Iím waiting on the OZ tune and pulley/belt replacement. Has anyone pulled the trigger? Open to discussions on the Roush engine and transmission program. If you like it or are wanting more.
I can tell you my experience is that I love the kit as is, but do wonder if the transmission can get smoother, and how the increase in hp and improved transmission program will effect traction. I also want the top speed limiter removed so I can run at the track, only 20 min from me.
Also, what are you guys doing about traction? I know we are not pushing 800 hp like other kits, but 540 hp to the wheels is enough to give me issues at times. Iím still deciding on wheel/tire set ups, as Iím in the north east and get snow and ice. I know this will be a fix to some traction issues. Iíve read the track set ups to address traction, but my truck is a daily driver. I bought Hellwig front/rear sways to install on a warm day, and Iím thinking of getting the Ford lowering kit which I believe is the same as the Ground Force. This will help handling but not traction as much as I need. So, where have your trucks come since your install, and what are your future plans?

It's my personal experience with that oz tune that leads me to tell you to steer away from it and use the tune that should have been included with your add on equipment.

Did you not get a custom tune to support your super charger?

Oh wow. I'm surprised to hear that. Usually Ken's tunes are pretty mellow at low pedal, and pretty wild when you're on it. I find the shift points he uses in sport mode are very aggressive.

Another vote for Oz tuning from me. I had his omega tune in my truck stock, and liked it enough that I had him tune me when I put the whipple on. Very noticeable increase in power over the whipple tune, with much improved shifting.

Mines a 17. Iíve Oz, 5star, VMP and PBD. All are pretty dang close on power. But VMP and PBD really had the trans tuning dialed in and had the best power. Then had Fathouse Fab dyno time it and itís a totally different beast now
