So I just hit 100miles on my Sx and I want to go to the track to see what I run stock. Do you guys think I should wait and put more miles on it?

Yea I don't think it's a great idea to push it to it's limits with only 100 miles on it. Maybe 500 if u don't wanta wait for 1000

I asked TK that KIA and Jesse said u should break in the turbo for 500 miles using REG gas and then go over to premium. U can double check with him but that's what he told me.

is it gonna be completely stock when you take it to the track? im excited to see how it performs and handles.. im glad youre gonna take our advice and wait though, 100 miles is way too soon to push the limits.

Seems like most stock numbers have been close to 10.6 on the 1/8 and 16.5 on the 1/4
