I used to work in the natural gas compression and refining business. We had 6500 hp multi stage recipricating gas compressors, pressuring the gas up to 5000 psi. I've seen piston rods 6" in diameter snap like a twig ifslug of water gets into the cylinder. I've also seen a 5 ton cylinder block crack due to water. You cannot compress a liquid (water, oil, etc) Something else will fail first...

We hydrauliced a cylinder on purpose in auto shop to see if we could get the 6 cyl inline Ford engine to destroy itself.  Removed the rocker arms from the #4 cylinder and used a high pressure pump to inject water into the cylinder as the engine was running. The crankshaft hit the floor in two pieces
