Umm... well, I don't plan on interfering with mine and it'll still run, so I'll say non-interference.

Searching for the thread on this. If I remember correctly, it is an interference design with a chain drive. There is very little to worry about because chains almost never break in an engine. Rubber/Kevlar belts do, but chains don't.

back on topic, it is not an interference engine, and it is chain driven.

So interference means that there's a chain to drive all the other crap, where non-interference means it's a belt? Do I understand correctly?

No. Interference means when the cam drive breaks (as in a belt drive) the pistons hit the valves and bend them. Non-intereference means if the cam drive stops, the engine can turn over indefinitely without damaging anything. This is a big issue with belt driven cams, but only extremely rarely an issue with chain driven cams. I have no fear the chain will break and cause this to be a problem with the 2AZ.
