It's the OEM parts that have cause more bent valves and timing belt failures than any other brand. There have been countless threads where SVT owners have had a timing belt failure and a lot of times it was before the recommended change interval. In fact I remember seeing one recently. Don't let one or even two instances make the decision for you. I'm getting tired of seeing this. One guy post and all of sudden gates is bad brand or a failure prone part? I don't think so.

Don't forget Paul when we did my zetec timing belt the brand new oem tensioner failed. We had to put the original(still oem) tensioner back on. Had no problems with tensioner after that other than a little belt walk. Believe that could've been taken care of if it was messed with a little more but we had no time that evening to do that.

I remember. I just hate seeing how one or two failures all of a sudden make a brand a bad brand is all when we've had so many successes with it. Of course then again there are some with the OEM parts on that went way over the recommended change interval and nothing happened to them.
