Hypothetical high blood pressure and G-Forces

Hypothetically, if one could have a powerful heart (animal transplant or genetic modification), increased blood pressure (chemically induced stress?), and perhaps thicker artery walls to handle the pressure, could one reduce the effects of high G-forces, i.e. G-LOC?

@alex551993,
Im not sure but Id think that even of you could create a whole new vascular system that would be tolerant of high pressures, the fact that blood needs to cross gas/ liquid barriers and osmotic membranes at several places in the body, these places would be susceptible to incredeible constant stresses during high g's (like the kidneys , liver, lungs, brain etc etc.)
