power steering pump as injector pop tester

anyone ever thought about using a power steering pump to create pressure to test injectors? u can even use it to cycle the injectors for a few hours, i dont know if the pressure from the pump is enough but surely it can be modified

NO

The maximum pressure is just over 800 PSI.
I have boosted several MB power steering pumps peak pressure to 1500 PSI, but the pump life was measured in seconds.
