Yes you can, but the numbers are gonna be slightly higher because of expansion and such. but if a hole leaks 40% , gettin it hot isnt gonna help much.....

If you buy aleakdown gauge , they give you instructions, orjust bring the piston to TDC with both valves closed and screw in the hose end and with a 100 psi connect and gauge 2 will give you the amount of leakage. Its best to use 100 psi, it makes the math easy that way.
