Default Stupid but not so stupid timing belt question..

Ok sooo I bought a new timing belt off of Ebay which was a bad idea in the first place since I could have bought a new Gates for $66 at one of the local stores. But since I am doing a total motor rebuild and still had time I ordered one offline. It was listed as a new Gates timing belt (T328) for $50 so I ordered it and it arrived yesterday and I open the beat up Gates box and there is a belt in there that is the right measurement but is labeled Contitech...

I have talked to the seller and he will refund and all but I am curious on opinion of quality from Gates vs Contitech timing belts. I am just rushing myself to get this motor back in the car. Is it junk or would you use it over Gates or the opposite.

Thanks for any input

Contitech is good stuff. Same company that makes Continental Tires.

Contitech is a good quality belt. They make a lot of oem belts for different manufacturers

I guess I'll give the Contitech belt a whirl. Thanks to all the members for their responses.
