    I don't know about average but mine went at 140,000 miles. Stage II for over 100,000 running 17 psi peak.

    Personally Ive seen a few of them go on some Forester XT's and LGT's as well as many a WRX..I would say without much modding/pushing the turbo to its limits if you get 150,000 out of it..
