why are injectors so expensive?

I don't really understand this. I have purchased sets of injectors for gas cars from places liek rc engineering etc...even huge 650cc injectors are only about $115 a piece.
And these are good quality pieces too...

What is it about diesel injectors that warrant their price?

AIS, 4 inch MBRP, 38R ww2, IHI bellowed up pipes
PHP 6 Pos Chip, swamps 140 volt mod
PMF coilovers and 4 link...front and back

Our injectors are BOTH Fuel Injectors AND Injection Pumps...

On other diesel engines, to price compare, you'd need to add the cost of a new pump to the set of injectors.
