Have you checked the specs on http://www.webcamshafts.com ? The 86a is, as I recall, a very agressive grind that trades low-end torque for high-RPM power. It has more duration in both intake and exhaust, significant overlap, and lots of lift. You will need to rev the motor high enough that upgrading the valve train (specifically the springs) is necessary, plus you'll want higher compression than stock because it will "leak out" during the overlap when both intake and exhaust valves are open.

I don't know about the head temps.

The cam will absolutely not work with the stock-type fuel injection (D-jet or L-jet).
