If your airlock really poppped and was doing 60 beats a minute at 80 degrees I would suggest that things fermented as they should. Your original s.g. should have been well over 1.013, most likely in the 1.040 to 1.050 range. Your current reading is about right for the finished brew. You probably read it wrong the first time. The temperature effect at 80 degrees would only make a 4 or 5 point difference in your reading. The next time you brew I would suggest that you cool the wort to 70 degrees or less before starting the fermentation.
