If the maximum bmep in the cylinder is 2000 psi, the injection system will have to be capable of much more than that to accurately put the correct amount of fuel in. Upping this significantly through FI may cause a lot of issues in fuel control.

That's why direct injection systems are so expensive to implement.

They require very high pressure pumps and lines. That don't come cheap.

But, it's worth it.
