Calibration numbers implies that you want to transfer settings from someone else's system. Beyond some general trends, this kind of transfer of settings does not result in calibration. You are more likely to make the situation worse than if you visually calibrate the system with one of the many test disks available. This is more true with projectors than with most other display types.

The cheapest method would be to use the THX calibration. That's probably on several DVDs which you already own. Outside of that you can use Joe Kane Production's DVE or Ovation Multimedia's AVIA. I'd recommend DVE or AVIA.

As Leonard said, you cannot simply copy someone's settings and call it 'calibrated'. There are different factors such as bulb age, screen, and set up which can affect the result. It's best just to do it with one of the DVDs or hire a professional. A professional will go way beyond what you can achieve with those DVDs, but it will cost you.
