yeh i think you will find your timing belt has jumped some cogs,
at the least it will need timing setting up and new belt, at the worst you may have bent 8 valves and damaged 3 and 4 pistons

sometime you get away with it sometime you dont, can damage more than just piston, big ends little end, bend the rod, etc depends on the impact and this sort of damage is pretty unusual prob looking at 100 for GM belt kit no idea on headgasket if head needs changed
