Thats really difficult to say.
Most people change the rod after breaking in the engine due to the rod stretching during breakin. I always change rods in all of my engines after breakin.
But I also know people who do not even bother with this.
On a high dollar engine, it is cheap insurance.
I have seen rods go out with in the first gallon of fuel due to stretching.
