Lbar, You should be pumping gas thru that 555HP "V" like it is going out of style.
I would be! Save gas in your cav and pour thru what you saved when in the caddy.

Growing up one of my buddies had an old Volvo that would backfire every time he shut it off but not for about 10 seconds. We would be out of the car and walking away watching the poor sap that happened to be walking past his heap when she blew.

Back to the OP,
Get smooth on the bump starts and even the tired motor mounts will likely hold up. One thought on clutch wear with bump starting, people who get realy high gas mileage out of their cars are easy on clutches because they never rev em up to take off or between gears. We stay out of the throttle so the clutch sees much less wear than the average stick shift driver.

Get bored very quickly. Vibe, Saturn, and crv all long gone. Been a while but I'm back in the game, gunna see what I can do with this Corolla.
