Indeed. Car makers jump all over new tech. It's the consumers who don't like it. Time and again you see companies innovate... Mitsubishi with gasoline direct injection in the 90's, Audi with the ultralight aluminum A1... Mazda with the miller cycle engine... Only to be met with a resounding "meh" by consumers.

And 200 psi? Current high pressure diesel systems have rail pressures over 10k psi and injector pressures in the thousands. Same goes, apparently, for Ecoboost motors.
