Also, one guy making LESS than 500whp is at I think 98% injector duty cycle. Guess what? Nobody makes higher flowing injectors.

Another problem is that direction injection only gives you a small window to inject fuel. With port injection, you have way more wiggle room. There's a reason that a guy in the Ukraine put custom port injectors into his intake manifold so that he could get reliable fuel at the 500whp mark.

Direct injection is more efficient, but not really geared towards making lots of power. Yes, the Coyote motor is a beast, but take an old port injected 5.0, build it to hell, and slap a couple of GT40s on there. You will make the power more easily without the hassle of DI.
I believe in one of the new performance magazines, there is a stock looking MS3 making over 600whp.
