    I clipped this from one of the ads presented here...
    Is this high compression, direct injection something along the lines of a diesel?

    Compression is not quite that high or else you'd be launching cyl heads to the moon.
    In 2001, Ford introduced its first European Ford engine to use direct injection technology, badged SCi (Smart Charge injection) for Direct-Injection-Spark-Ignition (DISI). The range will include some turbocharged derivatives.

    Do these engines require high pressure fuel pumps?

    Sounds like Ford has a real winner in that engine.

    Yes....or similar to what we have now at least. In a normal injected engine the fuel is sprayed on the back side of the intake valve as it opens. This allows the fuel to mix with the air and swirl into the chamber, be compressed and ignited. With direct injection the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber at the precise moment it is needed. Then it is ignited and away you go. This is far more economical as every drop of the fuel is used in the cylinder. The older type wastes a certain percentage due to how it is injected. You will also see cleaner engines because of this system too. F1 cars have been using it for years. Ford is also playing with engines that do not have a cam shaft. Valves are operated by solenoids instead. Efficiency is way up on these engines but thy are still a bit pricey for the general public. Again F1 engine have had this stuff for years. That's how they can attain 18K RPM. The moving parts are down to a minimum.
