Default CASE learn in Twin Cities area in MN

I got a PCM from Intense coming in the mail and will need a CASE learn. I'd rather not go get raped by the dealership only to have some stoned half-wit in the shop reflash the PCM. I'd be willing to pay $50 or almost anything reasonably less than the dealership. I live in Osseo which is just NW of Minneapolis. I know there are a lot of Bonne members in Minnesota, hopefully someone could help me out that happens to be in the area. PM me or reply on here I guess.

Check out http://mnclubgp.com/forum/index.php, there should be a couple of guys there that can help you out.
Dealership would probably charge you whatever 1hr of labor is, even though it won't take a minute.

Are there any other scanners or software that can do a case learn besides the Tech II ?

For some reason, I thought HP Tuners could do it.

they can. I just don't know anyone with a tuner.

I may have lucked out though. I just talked to a buddy of mine that just got out of the workhouse and used to work at a shop and knows the people there quite well, I guess one dude owes him some money as well, but he'* gonna get ahold of the guy and see if they have a Tech 2 or something that can do the CASE learn.

In the meantime I'll just drive casually to and from work. I've read enough stuff to be confident that I can drive it grandma-like until I get a CASE learn.

Thanks for all the help guys
