In general, I'd assume if you treat it right through regular maintenance and even some preventive maintenance (replacing things before they call to be replaced) you should get a good 150-200K out of a Subaru engine, or really any car. Pair that with babying it, and I think you have a good recipe for success.

Now, no maintenance and babying it... yep, gonna lead to problems. Maintenance and gunning it all the time means more maintenance, which if you're following Subaru's guidelines maybe be not enough maintenance for the driving conditions... hence why engines sometimes fail.
