I bought a timing belt kit the other day and while I thought I was buying a Gates belt, it was actually a made in Thailand Mitsuboshi belt.

Now, this is my stupidity and not the fault of the vendor.

So I did some searching and learned that Mitsuboshi had made the stock belt in Hondas and Lexuses, and some Subaru Outbacks, but nothing else. I couldn't find anyone saying anything about them on a Subaru forum.

I just want a little more reassurance, can/should I use this belt, or should I order a Gates belt just to be safe?

Withdrawn. I don't know. I was thinking of another M..y company that makes the OEM idler pulleys.
