Getting ready to change out a broken timing belt. It let go at about 30mph while decelerating to a stop. Should I be concerned about internal damage to pistons? Does anyone know the built in advance of the cam?

No concern whatsoever - the 2.3 Lima is not an interference engine. Just replace the parts and drive on.
