Turbo Engine Life

I'm curious on a built 3.3 if you are running over 400HP what's you're expected engine life? 60,000 miles?

Way too vague of a question, need far more parameters about the intended use of said engine.
Track time? Street time? Sunny Sundays? How often do you expect to be on full boost? Who built the engine & with what level of components?
The photo you have is of a very expensive engine build, twin turbo, EFI, full bay intercooler etc. etc.
So...???

Drive a stock 930 like you stole it, and I doubt you'll get 60k out of it.

It really depends on how the engine is built to get the power. Build it efficient, 1.0bar max, overkill the cooling, conservative timing, proper ARF's, ARP hardware, and keep the redline below 6500 there is no reason it should not last as long as a stocker.

400hp isn't really that much power with a modern turbocharger and reasonably free-flowing exhaust. If you're driving and maintaining reasonably, I'd expect at least 100k out of it and likely more.

I've heard of a number of cars making 250k - suspect there was a top end in there somewhere. Discussion of daily driving a Turbo and comments on mileage over at Rennlist.
