Yeah, timing belt wreaks havoc on everything since it's an interference engine. Depending on what rpm it broke at and and how quickly it was shut down, it could be pretty bad.

However...for that money it's a good buy, even if you have to replace the entire engine. (M20s are basically disposable--find a totalled e30 with body damage) Try to haggle down to 700 if you can.
