They are all durable if built right. 362 cubic in max, 350, 358 or 352 are all very popular combinations that are Extremely reliable if built correctly.

350 will be the cheapest. Depending on the RPM you spin, the 352 likes RPM, it your after torque, the 358 is the best.

They can all be awesome for the right price.
