Yes quite a few of us do actually. Do you have gauges?

Its a sensor that goes into your exhaust manifold to monitor exhaust temps. Its the most important gauge you should have
here is a pic of it

If you dont have one with the livewire already i recommend getting it

I would highly suggest that you at least monitor your EGT's. I run my race tune as my daily driver most of the time, but I do have gauges.

This is what your looking for. Do you remember this box and probe? That will read your Exhaust Gas Temps, and let you know if your about to melt down the power plant or not. To run the Extreme setting it is highly recomended. I drove my 05 on the Extreme Race everyday, but there comes times when you need to back out of it a little. Then again I drive pretty hard.
