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.
