Oooh -- thanks for the reminder, Gary. I got lucky, the stock '83 is a
non-interference, so the belt went back on, no harm no foul.
Still, bent valves should be a lot easier to fix than, say, a holed piston.
I still say let's hope it's something easy...

But does the CAMSHAFT turn? That's the key. I had exactly these symptoms
on my '83 CGT (no turbo), and the problem was that the timing belt had
slipped off the cam sprocket. The spinning-really-fast is the indicator.
Isn't the turbo motor an interference motor? Might be trouble if so....
