Yes sir! You just need to have the solenoid pack connected.

On a side note, funny thing, I made the mistake after my build of checking the injectors the same way, then doing the ignition coils. KABAAAAAMMMM! I heard my neighbors saying, "WTF is he doing over there"?

Perfect! I did it the same way you described.
