Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!


This engine is not interference as far as piston-to-valve. If the timing belt breaks the valves won't contact the pistons and bend. If the intake and exhaust cams are turned separate from each other the valves can hit each other, but this shouldn't really be an issue.
