Need correct info for SVT valves, etc - t-belt problems

Hi guys-

Tensioner pulley on the timing belt let loose while doing 80 on the highway - 300+ miles away from home no less. Does not hold compression now.

Are the SVT valves (vin 3) different than the ZX3 valves?

I'll check the pistons and handle anything I need to there. Will check rocker arms and everything in the upper end. Besides a gasket and valves, anything else major I'll need to purchase?

Anything else I should check?

97k miles, in decent condition w/new tires, what's the car worth in this condition with the bent valves?

Thank you all

Moved to SVT Performance where you can find more info., surprised it got missed in General Tech with no replies.

SVT valves are different, and there are no rockers. It's cam on bucket with each bucket sized for clearance (no separate shims, swap buckets for clearance adjustment).

New head bolts are needed (single use TTY type), sometimes packaged with the head gasket. Full timing set of belt/tensioner/idler of course. Timing tool set is worth it to make setting the timing easier.

That covers a few of the questions for a start.
