Default Suggestions needed for my situation

First, thanks for looking at this and I hope it wont be too much to read... oh look, a squirrel.

Initial issue: Decided to build my STi after a head gasket failure. Up to about a week ago, I wasn't concerned about tuning and how I was going to data log and get the info back to my tuner BUT now I have a problem!

First problem: My hard drive on my laptop died and thats the only place I had Access Tuner Race installed (with install file on that drive too) for my 08 STi. Tried everything (even the freezer) to revive the hard drive so I could image it but it wont work.

Second problem: Cobb decided (this is my opinion here) that too many people were messing up their cars with the ATR software and took it down to "retool" it. I'm not upset about their decision to "retool" but what I am upset about is that they wont give ANYONE a previous version of the software no matter the circumstances. I called them and they said 'NOPE, not going to happen and when we do release it, there are certain requirements to get it', AKA you have to take a class (price undetermined) to be able to use the software.

Now, I take responsibility on the hardware problem. I am in IT and I should have been better prepared for such an issue but I let it slip my mind with all the other billion things I have going on. This was an immediate failure on the HD and didn't see it coming.

Solution 1: Buy or rent a Tatrix cable to data log along with my AEM AFR gauge in RomRaider so I can have a way to get my tuner the data to create and modify the tune. (looks to be the best one so far)

Solution 2: Run the outputs from the AFR gauge to my TGV's and interface that way so the AP can do all the logging. But since the flex fuel/fuel pressure kit takes up both connections, that is out of the question now.

Solution 3: Go for the long shot and hope someone has a version of ATR that I can install on my brand new SSD. Hook up all the other Cobb stuff I have (I know that the e85 kit is not supported with previous versions of ATR) and then run the AEM outputs from the AFR to the DB9/USB connection and integrate it into ATR for AFR support.

If ANYONE can assist with letting me rent their Tatrix cable or has an install of ATR for an 08+ STi I would reallllllyyyyy appreciate it.

Thanks for reading and for any help you can give me.

You can log on RomRaider with a $10-15 eBay Vagcom cable Wideband hooks up to your laptop directly, so you're good to go.
