I'd take these rules with a grain of salt
Concessions will be made to assist brands to run FI if they choose. They will need the help to compete against the big displacement normally aspirated competition. Even if BMW ran a FI setup now, they would get their asses handed to them by the competition.

There is no reason to go FI in a series that regulates power output. If you can make your HP normally aspirated, it is much more reliable for endurance racing. Porsche is more than happy running NA and will with the 991 in competition. They are known for their reliability, especially at the 24hrs.

Are they running two extra cylinders? Terrible analogies if you ask me.
