Generally the effects are immediate because you are physically removing them from the water column. What are the parameters?

Give it a half hour with filters on to mix in the new water to get an accurate new test reading.

Did you test your tap or source water too? I have a feeling you're trying to figure something out.

If you change 40% of the water, and your source water has zero ammonia, nitrites and nitrates, than you should expect:
ammonia 3
nitrite .6
ph. 8.
nitrates 0ppm

pH should not change unless the water hardness (GH/KH) is very different from your tank water or you add very acidic lub alkaline water totally different to your tank water. The change should be immediate.
