Do it right after. If u drive it home u might mess up your transmission because of the new shift points..

I fail to see how it will mess up the tranny.

If you have an automatic transmission it will mess it up because the shift points are predetermined by your gears that you have installed from factory; look it up if you don't believe me...

Changing the gears will make your speedometer read incorrectly. This can be annoying, and can get you in trouble with the law! Also if you have an automatic transmission this will cause your shift points to be incorrect and could cause some serious problems that could lead to transmission damage. There are several methods to correct these problems though.

Just a heads up,if you have a custom tune(e.g. Bama) make sure whoever installs them knows that, and they know not to re flash your car.learn from my mistake.

Why would he re flash your car most installers I talk to just install the gears, they never reflash the car and leave it stock for the owner?
