Yes it is.

Check for Engine Damage:
CAUTION: This engine has been identified as an INTERFERENCE engine in which the possibility of valve to piston damage in the event of a timing belt failure is MOST LIKELY to occur. A compression check of all cylinders should be performed before removing the cylinder head(s).
