Yes I can and no it won't!
The number of steering wheel rotations from lock to lock is a simple gearing issue inside the steering rack (or steering box). This is the component that you would have to change to make the difference you are looking for.

All that would do is make the pump go faster, and seeing that it runs at a variable rate linked to engine speed it wouldn't make any difference except it might make a few more bubbles in the reservoir
