Anyone in the area able to flash ECUs?

I just did my VF39 swap and I have the XPT map, but I don't have a tactrix cable or anything. I was wondering if anyone around the San Jose area had the stuff and experience and could help me with the flash. I also need some help installing my GM boost solenoid, I read the DIY guide on Nasioc and it said it required soldering. I need it done ASAP and would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

khoi, where did you get your ecu flash to a stage 2 map?
I need to get this done, but plan to get a AP sometime later.

I just flashed back to stock and kept it that way until my VF39 swap. You could get the XPT stage 2 map for about $60 I think, but like me you'd need a tactrix cable and laptop or someone who knows how to flash with the necessary stuff.

Do you have XPT stage 2 map you can reflash my ecu to? That would save me some time and money, let me know
