Default Is the 4.3 liter V8 engine a non-interference engine?

Just bought a 2003 SC430 and I am wondering if the 4.3 liter V8 is a interference or a non-interference engine. I plan on doing the timing belt at 90K per the Lexus recommendation but I was just wondering if the belt breaks does it just stop or do you bend all 32 valves
