Tuned chip for low boosted m42

Im thinking about making a turbo set up for my m42, plan on running low psi since it will be my daily still (around 8 psi). Ive found most of the parts ill need manifold, downpipe, BOV, IC, etc. My only concerned is finding/getting a tuned chip for the setup i want. Does anyone know a local shop/site i could contract, any help is appreciated.

im debating whether to do this or just do an m50/52 swap because i have read that the AFM will give you issues for a boosted m42 and also the tuning is a PITA apparently... i might order the VEMS plug and play kit though but that still leaves me with the AFM issue :S

you can tune with Ostrich 2.0. I' not sure how to set it up with, but I know it works with m42.

Let me know if you magically get a hold of Barrie, I sent him quite a lengthy email a while ago and have yet to hear back. No phone number listed or address for him anywhere I can find so maybe smoke signals?
