I am about to start the process of curing and cycling previously removed live rock(Dead Rock)
I plan to do this in my garage which will be getting pretty hot soon. 80+
When cycling the rock, does temp being higher than 80 have any negative impacts to the nitrogen cycle?

80 should be fine, and in fact should help speed the cycle along.

In fact, according to Dr. Tim in his MACNA talk, 84-85F is perfect: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/dr-tims-tips-for-speeding-up-fishless-cycles.733983/
