Nawh! I'd worry more and more as I got to 4+ links*, but I'd bet big bucks that 1 link isn't a problem.

* Mainly a gut feeling based on valve acceleration rates, etc.

Welcome Aboard!

I'm not sure how I'd go about checking on that car, but welcome aboard anyway! The odds are that you DID break things... the 2.7 IS an interference engine.

Easiest thing is probably to look at swapping in a 3.x motor from a salvage yard, using Dan's book and the board here as a guide. HERE is the link to the conversion manual.
