Default New spark plugs for stage 1 ECU, 2010 3.8?

Do I need to run different plugs for the stage 1 ecu in a manual transmission 3.8?

Also, are there any directions of anything to do upon first time of installing the new ECU, I can't find anything online when I google'd it.

Thanks!

New spark plugs are not really needed

Thanks Jay!

When I get it in and reconnect the battery should I start and let it idle for a couple minutes to recalibrate, etc. or just fire it up and drive?

You do not even have to disconnect the battery to install the ECU.
Before you fire up the car do this process to avoid throttle code.
Put the key in accessory mode for 5-10 sec then off then acc about 3 times without firing up the car. Then start it up.
What this process is doing is matching a throttle body position with newerly tuned ECU.
