Hey all...

I just heard from a friend of mine who elected, against my advice, to
drive his 5kcst w/ 150k miles on probably the original timing belt from NY
to Georgia.  I bet you can guess where this story is going...  He said the
belt broke when he was doing about 75 mph...and he was stranded on the
side of the road for about 6 hours...

Anyway, are turbo engines contact or non-contact?  I told him that I
didn't know for sure but that they _might_ be non-contact due to a lower
compression ratio vs. that of a NA engine.  Something tells me that he
fried the engine, however...
