Clontech GFP

Is anyone using Clontech's pEGFP reporter vectors?  I want to compare
expression of the F64L/S65T double mutant to the same with "humanized"
codons.  Clontech claims the change in codon usage results in around a
7-fold increase in fluorescent signal (in CHO cells) - can anyone verify
this (in any cell type)?  I'm using GFP as a reporter in chicken
blastodermal cells.

Thanks for any input.
