Default D15b7....Interference engine or not?

So my friends sister was driving her 93 del sol with a d15b7 and she shifted into 4th gear and the timing belt snapped. Since then she has tried to crank it plenty of times and before i replace the timing belt i would like to find out if it is or not. And i don't necessarily feel like taking the head off to find out if somethings wrong and then have to replace the head gasket.

Ok so yeah it is an interference engine so i am going to replace the head completely because i happen to have a vtec head off a d16a6. It will bolt up and everything correctly right? And should i get the new timing belt for the vtec head or the other head.

The A6 head isn't equipped with VTEC.
