Default mass source term in buoyantSimpleFoam

I would like to add a mass source term in buoyantSimpleFoam. I define msource in a dictionary.
The continuity equation looks like this in that case:

div(rho*U) = msource

And I have added source terms in
1) the momentum equation: + fvm::Sp(msource, U) on the RHS
2) the energy equation: +fvm::Sp(msource, h) on the RHS

Is it enough to modify the definition of p_rghEqn() in the pEqn.H file by adding the term -msource on the RHS?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
