How fast are you pushing it and what gear is it in??If you are turning the engine at the same RPMs it shouldn't make a difference because you are displacing the same amount of air in the same amount of time.If you turn the engine slower(I bet I get arguments here)you could get a different reading.This is due to volumetric efficeincy and cylinder leakdown.

a few years back a friend had a high rev mini starter on his car and couldnt pass the pump test. He put it in 3rd gear and it slowed the starter down allowing him to pump a legal ammount.

it matters how fast you turn the engine.
