The easiest way I install a timing belt on Subarus with Dohc's is to off set both of the intake cam gears before you set/release the tensioner. It's usually about a tooth off to the right. The reason I do this is when you release the tensioner it picks up the slack and pulls the belt tight and it will throw off the alignment marks. Something I've picked up through out the 15 years of being a auto mechanic. Just double check all of the timing marks. GL.
