Default EJ20G Timing belt Which one do I use????

So I've decided to do the timing belt on my ej20t and just want to confirm I'm doing everything right.
BeforeI took the belt off, the turbo side cams both exhaust and intake were not really lining up, they looked off by about a tooth.
Here is what I did, If i've made any mistakes, please correct me before I start her up.
1. took the plug out of cyl. #1 and put a compression guage in their.
2. turned the crank via the front crank bolt until I started to get compression on the guage, then lined up the marks on the crank with the block.
3. took off the idler pulley
4. took off the tensioner(at which point **** hit the fan and both intake cams moved because of the tension taken off the pulley)
5. Using the manual, I rotated the cams back to where they should be, making sure to only turn them the way the book indicated.
6. So here is where I'm at right now, the turbo side exhaust and intake cams cyln 1,3 have no pressure on them, as in they are not pushing any valves down, but the other side, ie. cyl #2,4 cams are under pressure, as in they are pushing down valves.
Is this correct?
Also, what timing belt should I use. will a wrx work?
Thanks for any tips I may have missed.

the belts on an EJ20G are the same way as on the DOHC 2.5rs.
THe ones on the EJ207 are like the ones on the USDM WRX.
