In the world of quality engines, the piston port two stroke RULES dependability due to fewer moving parts to fail.
It's a judgement call but until china two strokes improve (it is slowly happening) the four strokes are slightly more dependable.
That being said, I have always preferred two strokes for simplicity and ease of repair.
i sure do like the idea of fewer moving parts lol
