with an '08 Reno.

It had 14 miles on it when I got it.

What's the break-in period, roughly?

Thanks guys!

Welcome, I'm new as well, from what I hear break in is 10K? Although I don't really know myself. I got my Forenza also with 14 miles on it and just got over the 10K mark. My 07 Forenza reached 11K just a month ago.

my hp break in came in right around 4 or 5 but i didn't notice my fuel economy shoot up till 10k. Car is about to be a year old and if i let it run at 55 mph on the highway and just cruise, it gets 40 mpg.

So, run the crap out of it, for a while, right? Check. 100+ miles in one day.

I've always wanted to check but never have. I'd like to start doing car shows once I fix my car and clean up the regular wear and tear a bit.

I've got two 12s at 3200watts max total. I can't remember the RMS and I'm not near my car today
