The quick answer is no. Interference fit engines can be designed to be more efficient with respect to specific power and emissions. All diesels are interference because of their small combustion chambers. With timing belt engines it is best to assume they are interference unless you know otherwise. The only timing belt engine I have ever had that wasn't interference was the 2.3L used in Ford Ranger pickups, and it is a fairly old design.
