I advise against raising system pressure. Most EFI Bosch injectors are rated for 3 bar fuel pressure and it's there they have optimal spray pattern.

Also, fuel volume DOES NOT increase linearly with fuel pressure. If you double fuel pressure your flow rate raises with 41%. Add boost on the top on it and it's obvious why fiddling with FPR is not worth considering. Thus, your pump would need to supply fuel at 7 bar (!) pressure in order to provide 41% more fuel than stock (on turbocharged engine boosting 1 bar).

Keep the stock 3-bar FPR and change injectors so you have approx 80% duty cycle on highest load.
