It would be interesting to see long term results with 2 identical engines driven the same way but one being shut down more frequenlty. Although it would be pretty much imposible to do an identical test. It's pretty much guaranteed that an engine that's shut down all the time will have more issues, if not with engine internals, but for sure the belts, clutch plates, etc.
