There are always odd ball cases like that. There are also cars running GT35R turbos that last a long time on stock internals. Luck of the draw, and relative to so many variables.

Chance are, even if he hadn't made the modifications, the engine would have blown 10k later. Could have been a bad tune, etc etc, but...

Get a high quality tune if you're going to go to stage 2.
