2nd Gen 3.2 here. Sounds like if the timing belt has slipped even one notch, valve damage is all but guaranteed?

Before I confirmed the current issue (sudden unexplained misfires on 3 cylinders and 40% drop in compression across all) it was still running fairly smoothly, considering, and i heard no banging or other scary sounds at any point.

I don’t believe a one-tooth slip will cause piston-valve collision. I think I’ve seen posts where it was stated that it has to be off maybe 3 teeth or more for that - I could be wrong. And it may be different number of teeth depending on pitch differences of 2.7 chain and 3.2/3.5 belt.
