here is link for the repair info that you requested
it looks like all the 2.5 liters of this year have dual over head cams, ( according to the service and repair info ) so most likely you bent some valves, which means that you may have to pull the heads for valve repair. So look up head removal and installation as well.
best of luck

this a non interference motor. however, there could still be damage. the belt will have to be installed and a compression test will have to be performed.
