Good thing you are having it changed on Monday. I have seen the results of a broken timing belt on an SVT motor. Let's just say, it wasn't pretty. Changing the timing belt can be a pain in the butt...but it's worth it knowing that you don't have to worry about it for another 60,000 miles. Another thing you want to have changed with your timing belt is the water pump, accessory belt and the pulleys. May as well do it since you're going to be in there anyways. Also it wouldn't hurt to have the motor mounts inspected as well. Good luck with your SVT!
