Question 2.5L Subaru engine in a small airplane

QUESTION: I need an answer to this question before I pull my engine from my engine mount: I have a 2.5L block with 2.2L heads (maybe they are
from a 2.0L, I really don't know.) I have done many wonderful mods to this engine and now I want to use a Kevlar Racing cam drive belt. Any thing to minimize the likelihood of an emergency in the air. I have heard the likelihood of a failure of the Kevlar belt is of the order of 1/3 that of the OEM belt. The question is: How do I spec this Kevlar belt?
nvcordman.

This engine will be asked to run at 4500 rpm for several hours at a time. I have race bearings throughout and a perfect valve job on both heads.
