slipped timing belt today at a rallyx :( [timing belt covers are a good thing, mmmkay?]

So, I want to make sure that I haven't damaged any of the valves.

Should I:
a) install new t-belt, set timing, and check compression
or
b) remove head and visually check for damage

seems to me that, regardless of any visual check, I'd need to do a compression test to be 100% certain that everything's OK.

with that in mind, do I really need to do a visual check, or can I just do a compression test?

i think you need to do a leak down test to know if your valves are bent...
