Default .12 if there's no set budget

This is probably a stupid question as there's going to be a myriad of answers, but I had been thinking about this. Not necessarily for myself, but to satisfy my curiosity.

If money wasn't a big deal breaker in the equation which engine (out of the box) would be the one to get? I'm not talking about buying an engine and sending it in to somewhere for work to be done. I mean as it comes out of the box. There is much talk about best bang for the buck etc. What if someone was willing to spend more?

I did not want to hijack the other engine thread with my question even though it's along the same lines.

I been out of the sedan scene for a couple of seasons running 1/8th i was doing testing on a new sedan with a Murnan RBM3 & all i can say the motor kept a perfect tune & the powerband felt like a 1/8th motor it was ballastic & made runtime other than that the next 2 are what a lot of drivers running Novarossi Flash tuned version
Maxpower XXL3 with the balanced crank
These 3 motors seemed to be the fastest I've seen on the track
