From the research I have done, the STI Motorsports belt seems to be the best you can get, better than all the other aftermarket ones.

"If you are feeling adventurous you can buy the STI upgrade timing belt which is made from kevlar and basically never needs to be replaced"

Timing Belt Suggestions - Rexnet Subaru Forums

According to Michael South (MSR) the sti motorsport belt is the belt to use, as it has less stretch/flex, giving more accurate cam timing throughout the rev range, especially when using more aggressive cam profiles and stiffer valve springs.

It makes sense to me.

yeah, but 'never needs to be replaced' is what surprised me, not what you're talking about.
