Fuel pressure is another variable with EFI that can be used to work with bigger (or smaller) injectors. With an adjustable regulator, you can lower the pressure and let a bigger injector use a longer PW at idle/low RPMs to improve response. Depending on your (or your tuner's) skill, the injector size parameter (in the ECU, not the motor) can be changed 10-20% to compensate for fuel pressure changes (ie the ECU sets PW based on a 60lb/hr injector, but the motor actually has a 72 lb/hr injector running at a reduced fuel pressure).

Also, ECUs are typically set up to run either high or low impedance injectors. Once you get over ~72lb/hr, there are no high impedance injectors available AFAIK. It is, however, fairly easy to set up a low impedance injector driver with a high impedance ECU.
