osb vinyl siding question

this shows the value of a community like this. i have now abandoned the idea of ripping 2x4s into siding or trying to use cheap composite or even t1-11. Im now thinking ill use osb covered with vinyl siding.

if i put up osb, how many rains can it withstand before the siding is up? does the siding have to go on immediately or can it wait a while/ I'm not experienced in any of this.I'm learning by doing and that's why all your comments and advice are helpful because I know most of you speak from experience. Thanks-

Wrap the OSB with "Tyvek" or 15# - 30# felt - nail it on so it doesn't
blow off.
OSB doesn't like water.
