Life Expectancy of a Lightning Engine

I just wondered how long one can expect a supercharged engine to last. I know that most V8 engines will last at least a couple hundred thousand miles these days if you take care of them. But what about the high compression SVT vehicles? Does all the added stress on the engine components take its toll and create more problems earlier on? Just wanted to see if any of you current Lightning owners have an opinion on this. Thanks.
