98 passat 1.8t timing belt Q

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  98 passat 1.8t timing belt Q

I am looking at a 98 passat with a 1.8t that the timing belt has broke in.
I was wondering if anyone knows if this is what is called an interference engine where the pistons hit the valves if they are not closed at tdc (ie. timing belt broke) or if there is enough room as to not bend the valves.
Thank you for any help.
