BTR Stage 1 - Break-In Process?

I have a 2014 2.0T R-Spec. It is pretty much stock. I have a K&N drop-in air filter and a vented & capped stock BOV. I am about to pull the trigger on a BTR Stage 1 tune with the NGK 1-step colder plugs.

I read that you have to drive the car normally for a week to properly break in the new ECU. However, I only really drive my car on the weekends. I have a work vehicle so the Genny is basically a weekend warrior. How should I go about the break-in period? Will it take me a month of weekend driving just to break it in correctly or what?

Break in is only required on a new engine/rebuild of any kind (which you should be way past). There is no reason for any break in on a stage 1 from BTR and the 1 step colder plugs is not required for stage 1 either. Your efforts should go into ditching that stock BOV and opening up the exhaust.
