Default Sandrail ECU?

Since I am 0 for 3 on running motors with my carb setup (just bad luck with the motors not the carb) I am thinking this time around I'd like to just buy a motor the way it would come in the car and run it with the fuel injection (plus this way I can run a turbo as well and kill 2 birds with one stone). My questions are; which stand alone ECU will be easiest to setup for a sandrail, and what stock parts will I need (i.e. sensors, harness, etc.)? I have tried looking around, but haven't really found much that would apply for what I'm trying to do. I am not looking to go crazy with power, just stock with much shorter exhaust and probably no muffler (though any suggestions that might get me a bit more power would also be appreciated, I am trying to keep it between 200-250hp so my transmission doesn't blow apart). I have my eyes on a Series 5, but I will be paying a few hundred more than I would for an S4, or I could step up to an S6 twin turbo for a few hundred more than that if it would be worthwhile.

I've already found a motor through a local company and am looking for an ecu, harness, fuel pump, and boost gauge at this point, but thanks for the heads up. just wondering, but how did your buggy run with that in it and was it a 2 seater or 4/5 seater? I am currently running a 002 VW bus tranny and am hoping that will hold up but if not I'll be looking for an 091.

were you running a stock engine/ turbo, or had you changed things? I am hoping by running it stock for now the 002 will hold up long enough for me to get an 091, but if I come across a good deal on one I'll go ahead and swap it before I put the engine in.

from what I found you were probably pushing at least 30-40 more hp then I will (that's if your setup was pretty much stock). I sure hope I have better luck.
