Originally, at least for VW, mixing PFI with DI was mostly about lowering particulate matter emissions for Europe; and that worked for a while.
But Europe has toughen up its stance against PM emissions; manufacturers are forced to fit PM filters to GDI engines like it's done for Diesel engines.
So, maybe mixing PFI with DI is no longer worth the extra cost.

Really impressive that a 20 year old relic Subaru spanks a 20K AMG engine and a M car:

Even the fastest 2 door DSG GTI ever tested by any magazine had no chance against the 2015 WRX.
The WRX didnít make the cut in AutoCar top ten list

https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho...888263..Subaru milked the WRX like 20 years old Boxer Teats. Rumor is Subaru is Going To Show another Special Addition Model At Geneva farewell to the STI . Long In The Tooth Addition..

I still think there is potential for the Aerton spec 2.0 ending up in the MK8 GTI. Seems like the speculated power figures posted here are similar. They may do something more special with MK8R. VR6 turbo is also coming back, you never know...Can you imagine if that engine made its way into the Golf R ?
Yeah, as previously said it's the particulate emissions... That's the only reason they had it in Europe. Now that they've had to add a filter to meet the new emissions standards, no need for port injection. The Euro guys are losing their mind...

I'd love to see one of the special edition GTI's make it here, but I'm just skeptical it'll ever happen. VWoA is one brand that doesn't like to step on it's own toes, and a high hp GTI would certainly step on the R's toes. It really doesn't matter much to me, I'm an awd or nothing guy because of chain requirements in the mountains, but I'm always in for seeing more competition in the hatchback segment.

The EA888 engine is capable of a lot. There's no question in my mind that they could pair it with a bigger turbo and offer more, but again, it's maintaining proper separation between the GTI and the R. They're at 228 right now... I could see them bumping close to 250, but I'd have a hard time seeing more than that. Maybe they'll give us the GTI performance engine that was available in Europe with 242 hp.

I would also agree with this as they need to keep a distiction between the two models. They also need to make sure that the R does not approach RS3 territory. I don't see them giving the GTI 300hp or the R 400hp.
