Only way to tell is to have the cylinder head removed or run a compression test to check for valve or piston damage. It's possible that damage occurred.

The motor that comes in the Supra stock (5M-GE) is a non- interference engine. So you should be ok. I might check to be sure though. You never know what's going on in there when that happens.

i would say you are ok with your engine,have a new belt put in and timed right,you should be fine.this is a job you dont want to try to do yourself.

As someone said before it is a non-interference engine. There shouldn't be many problems. You're probably a little off on the engine timing so just go to the shop and get that checked out, it'll hurt you in the long run in most cases. Just get it checked out.
