It will last forever depending on how you drive the car.

My LSD was toast after 85000 miles. I never raced the car or was particularly hard on it. But when I felt some looseness in the drive train and found it was in the diff. So I put in the Mugen LSD. Once the LSD was installed there was still play. I changed the drives shafts and propeller shaft and then there was a small clicking which turned out to be the axle nuts. Which I also changed and torqued to the new spec.

From what i've read the LSD is reported to be a weak point of the car but if it's driven as intended and not dragged too frequently then there are not too many reports of failures. Don't drop the clutch frequently at 7k rpm and it should hold up well.
