Question How long does it take to reset the on-board computer?

So here's the background on this question.
I have an 01 V6 that has a Dyno tune in it using my SCT X-Cal 2.
My state inspection recently changed they way they do things and now ONLY connect a code reader to the car. It reads the codes, and if there are no problems, you pass. Simple right? Well not so much if you have a custom tune. It fails everything. Not because there is actually anything wrong, simply because it can not read the custom tune.
So I flashed it back to stock and have put over 550 City and Hwy miles on the car. Every time I check the codes It gives me a P-1000 = System not ready. I thought it only took about 250 or so miles to reset the data, what am I doing wrong here?

you need to reflash the system after installing the stock tune....so pop that neg cable off for a couple minutes....then you'll need to do a drive cycle...it's under a hundred miles

I did that after I re-flashed it. left the cable off for about 45 minutes because I replaced the coil, plugs an wires while I was at it.
