I am not sure I understand what you mean by extreme wattage. If a bulb is rated at 230 watts and high or normal is 230 watts and eco is 200 how is running it in normal extreme wattage?
as an aside anyone should run their PJ in the mode that gives them enough light. If eco is enough then calibrate in eco and watch. Then as the bulb ages you can go back to normal to get more light out of the PJ.
If you need normal due to screen size then keep itin normal for a good image.
