Tim @ Mr. Norm's Garage and Bob @ Kurgan Motorsports. Don't know how much they'd charge you, but when you get the car tuned by one of them the email tune is free. I know that Jason @ VMP Tuning also does quite a bit of emailed tunes.

Also just for the future, if you can't afford to get the full potential out of the parts you install by getting a custom dyno tune then it would probably be best to not install them. A custom tune will always be better than an emailed one. With an emailed tune you will still be leaving quite a bit of power on the table.

You realise that you can get an emailed baseline tune, throw it on a dyno, and then kurgan/norm/any tuner that knows how to work electronic mail can modify the tune accordingly, right?

unless you are willing to put forth A LOT of effort with datalogging (with air fuel) the car after each emailed tune, you will never see the full benefit nor could you realistically feel safe with the tune.

nor will it really be any faster if it's just cams in a 2v...

Yes, but it is not the optimal way of doing things. In the long i run it would probably just lead to more frustration. I'm sure there would be a charge every time he wanted to make changes. My car was on the dyno twice and my tuner did street data-logging once to make a few tweaks after I had the supercharger installed. I was not charged anything extra for any of this since I already paid for the tune. It would be a big pain to not work directly with a tuner and have to email dyno graphs, datalogs, and tune files back and forth.
