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).
That's what happened to this car a while back. Now I'm stuck working on the replacement, and a warantty is now involved. This could take day's.
