Setting the timing will cause more of the HCs to burn off in the exhaust. Leaning out reduces the HCs and raising the RPM to about 1100 allows your engine to run at a speed that it breaths a bit bett

A hot cam adds power by optimizing breathing usually at higher rpm where the engine puts out it's most HP. Longer duration means that the valves are open longer allowing for more air to move. Overlap

Yes, running without a thermostat causes uneven cooling, cold and hot spots. If you must remove the thermostat, install a blanking sleeve which will restrict flow and allow more even cooling. Availab
