If it's been serviced and treated correctly, they go on quite a while and an easy 200k wouldn't surprise me at all.
No rule of thumb, though as all are treated differently and if you stick a tuning box on, it will end the life of the cylinder head much quicker.
A proper chipping/mapping is ok, though.
