How long to wait after DP fix install?

How long should I wait to go in after I installed the DP fix? I've read it can take some time for the car to adjust. I've done about 120 miles with it on the car so far.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I think he is referring on waiting for emissions and that you need to wait for your readiness codes to clear before going in.

Only way to know is to either have a code reader that tells you all systems are ready or roll the dice.

120 miles seems like a fair amount.

Thanks Jeff. Yes, I was intentionally vague on my post, but hopeful someone would know what I meant.

Readiness should be reached by 100miles under normal conditions.

Do the drive cycle (search for it). It's annoying, but you can get it ready in about 30 minutes if you follow it. Or if you're not in a hurry, just drive around for a few days. At 120 miles, you're probably fine. But if it's all highway, maybe not. I think it's the evap readiness that takes a while of idling to set and you have to be idling for it to count.

Yes, mostly highway. That's 4 days post install. Thanks!

Thanks guys. Got the drive cycle procedures. Look like a PITA, but given I do almost all highway over 60mph I probably should follow it. I'll get my patients in good order and dive in.

Thanks again
