LOL, this is funny because I just helped replace a timing set on an exact same car. You think it's a bitch to pull the front clip to get the intake off? That's about the easiest part of the job. you have to drop the trans to get at the chains.

you can pull the intake and valve cover and set timing to verify both cams are still in time. It it jumped a tooth, you should still be ok (especially seeing how you have compression still). The car I worked on had the lower chain snap (it was a new chain about 30K miles on it, 2nd chain).
