New engines do not require the historical break-in period that you are referring to. Best practices is just not to pin it like a madman for the first 1,000 miles, get an early oil change and you're done with it.
Personally I'd like to drive it in a performance capacity a while before the tune, but it's only because I'd like to appreciate the performace increase that your COBB AP V3 will bring.

The WRX just told me to drive faster, lap after lap.
