56F8323 Resources

Hello All,
I am new to the Freescale 56F8000E family of DSC's.  I am specifically interested in the 56F8323 for my project.  I am trying to understand how resources are used in the device.  For example:
on the 8323 the Quadrature Decoder appears to share resources with Quad Timer A.  If I enable the Quadrature Decoder how many of the timer channels are used?  If it is only 1 timer channel then can I use the other 3 timers for anything else?  Like a general polling timer that lets me know it time to go read an IO pin?
This type of information doesn't seem that evident in the databooks so I am hoping someone who  has actually developed on this device can point me in the right direction.
