cam timing chain -issues???

Will be using a Focus/Duratec 2.0l for a clubbie. Will be tuned for approx 280 hp @ around 8750rpm. I understand the timing chain and oiling for the chain could be a weak points at these specs. Has anyone experienced these issues? If so how have others got around these problems.

Cheers
Ian

We have built several all motor high RPM 2.3's and have yet to see any of the issues you describe...
