Timing belt

i'm just wondering which engines smash the valves when the timing belt snaps, i'm pretty sure the 2.5 does.

the main problem isnt with valves hitting pistons but valves hitting valves (intake hitting exhaust). buy genuine subaru belts and change them every 100 000km and you will never have a problem unless some muppet puts the belt on wrong.

Nothing makes Torque like 1.7Bar of Boost

well you smashed the pulleys so there is a chance that you have a cracked block or something else seriously wrong. Let your insurance cover going to a shop.
