I've been running a 1.8L engine with an 86a for 3 years now in my F Prod car.
The cam would be great for an aggressive street engine.
You don't need big valves or dual springs to make it work.
HD springs are a must though, as the powerband is from 4500-6500 rpm.
The valve lift is .435" which is a bit more than stock and you might need to clearance the pistons depending on the CR.
It will work with unmodified heads but if you let it breath the engine really comes alive.
I have chassis dyno results that show about 125 RWHP with stock size SS valves, ported, 11.5:1 CR, modified 40IDF carbs, etc.
