Turbosmart DVs + ER charge pipe?

After reading some accounts of the Forge DVs sticking, I've looked into alternatives. Seems like AWE/Helix and Turbosmart are good candidates, but IMO the TS parts look to be higher quality. As such, I'll probably be purchasing them soon.

Unfortunately, there simply are not many pics of the TS DVs installed in an ER charge pipe. Does anyone have any direct experience with this configuration?

Thanks for the reply. That's encouraging to hear about the Forge valves. Turbosmart indicates their DVs need to be serviced at regular intervals as well, btw. How long did you have the Forge parts installed for (years/miles)?
