Some people run their normal output fluorescent bulbs on electronic VHO ballasts such as the Ice Cap. Some people claim that the output of light is about the same as a VHO bulb at a significant cost saving. See the link below.

is there any way you can tweak the ballast?
Other than keeping it cool and well ventilated, I wouldn't mess with a ballast. I've never heard of anyone actually modifying it.
