Wow, that's an awesome deal. Dang it, dang it, dang it!!! I'd like to buy but my Sol spend account is dried up for the year.  :gaah:

Wait... Christmas list... Telling the wife now.

Questions:
1.  Are the OEM seats, retainers and keepers able to handle the extra performance?
2.  When dropping these in, will a stock or tuned stock turbo be able to get to the higher RPM's or is more for upgraded turbo's?
3.  Since I do most work myself, is there instructions or settings to help with the install?
4.  When opening up, is there any other parts that should be purchased with this?

Great questions and to answer your questions -

1) Yes we have installed dozens of these valve spring sets on both street cars and track cars retaining the OEM keepers, seats, seals and retainers and have yet to have a failure.  The OEM retainers are very strong.
2) The stock turbo will run out of flow before you are able to maximize the added rpm that the valve springs can give you.
3) No instructions are provided, these are meant to be installed by a professional mechanic or someone who has a great deal of experience installing valve springs in the past.  If you are going to do it yourself I suggest obtaining a factory service manual and following the procedure in the manual.
4) I would reccomend the following parts be repalced at the same time -

LNF Valve cover gasket set - http://www.performanceautowerks.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1838
