Drive the car the way you normally do. You should feel a good bump right after an install, not everyone does though. The ECU usually does need to make fine point adjustments for minor differences on your car or due to other variables.

The ECU wouldnt like learning for a nice calm and sedate grandmother just to be betrayed by her bastard stepchild the next morning.

The more driving situations you show the ECU, the more it will learn. Driving normally will simply give it an opportunity to evaluate and epitomize the setup.

I felt it right away, bit I went from no tuning to stage 2 so that might have made it more apparent.

I loaded the Stg2 map in the parking lot of the shop where my parts were installed and romped away from there. Took a week before it felt "normal". No looking back now.
