just wondering? bought a 90'GTS with the 5sfe (i think, its 2.2L). I know the 3s ges are designed almost the same. Just wondering if they are interferance. Would be nice if the timing belt snapped if they were :)

thanks

if its got a belt its non interferance-mostly if its a chain its interferance.

I blew my TB at 6k rpm in my 5sfe. woooo it made a good sound. but the engine was fine.
