Turbosport ltd Verniers- Anyone used them ?

Ive seen Verniers made by a company called Turbosport for the Kseries for 115.
What I want to know is are they cheap for a reason ?
Anyone had any experience with them.

there arent many nasp lovers on here. the few that there are, im pretty sure are running piper. well i cant see the turbosport ones not working... i mean, how wrong can you make verniers if you want to dig a little deeper, ask for some drawings of them from a side profile so you can check the distance of everything from the center as thats the only bit that they could get wrong lol, likewise with the material. a verbal grilling would probly do the same tho! youd assume them to be fine

I've no idea what mine were but could be these Turbosport ones. Not had any problems though whatever they are.

just had a look on their website. id trust them. they do engine dyno'ing, cnc work, specialist machining, blueprinting... chance of them messing up a set of drawings for some verniers is very slim
