Question regarding adding motors to dummy engine

I have a question concerning how many motors 1 PS2 or 3 board can power. My thoughts are to install a single motor in the dummy just for some extra pulling power as the train length and my layout grades are putting a single engine under a bit too much stress. Wheel slip from my 4 axle units, the six axles seem to have no issue. Does anyone know if I can add a single extra motor and wire it in to the existing powered unit?  

Thanks in advance for any insight.

The general answer is no.  The boards were designed for two motors maximum.  I'd bite the bullet and just do a PS2/3 upgrade and put two motors in the dummy.
