Gta Busted!!!!!!!

tonight pulled off from lights hit second and somthing went TWANG!! not sure, but think it is cam belt, put clutch in instantly and didnt here any noise like pistons and cams self-destructing! Car has only done 50,000 so well within alfa's replacement recomendation (of 72,000), is engine likely to be knackered, or is there a glimmer of hope? if anyone out there can supply any info good or bad, i'd be eternaly greatful! here's hoping!!!! thanks BRAD!

CHECK is at 36k - change is still 72k.

Welcome to AO and I hope you get your problem sorted out - start a new topic in the GTA tech section if you need help.
