Those who try will probably be picking up pieces of their block over 7 psi.
I dissagree there, direct injection makes boost on higher compression engines easier. The downfall is, no one that i have seen have gotten into the di injectors yet. Right now, the best bet is rs injectors if... they are bigger. Behind that, will be the clutches. Which is a phone call away with people around here.

Even with the talon not being di, I'm still running 10.5:1 with out issue on muchbhigher than stock boost on a 60mm Turbo.
