Although I agree, that with more modern materials, and some, improved component engineering, one can anticipate extending the functioning life of the engine, yes!
But, probably the greatest improvement in extending this life span was achieved with the introduction of fuel injection vs carburetors (fuel control); and therefore I'm not sure that one will still acquire the comprable performance life of the modern examples.
