I'm pretty sure it's non-interference. Just make sure you get the timing right the first time and it'll be good to go!

jk.. i had to set it a few times to get it right.

AFAIK Toyota belt driven motors are non-interference and their chain motors are interference.

you know that makes more sense than most manufacturers, I know honda motors belt or chain are usually interfeirence, but if you have a chain you pretty much dont need to replace it so why not make it that way? The belt though you do which means you might knock off timing, I like that kind of thinking

The 2zz is non-interference and it has a chain.

Not all belt driven Toyota motors are non-interference.
1MZFE is belt driven and is interference.
2ZZ and 1ZZ are chain driven but they are actually interference.
If the timing chain broke, the pistons will smash the valves.

You are right.. I got confused for a second. I thought it was interference but I remembered a thread somewhere saying it was non-interference so I was confused. But if that was the case, the valves wouldn't smack the pistons when the engine is over-revved. :cool:
