Are Gates 3.5L Timing Belt Kits Any Good?

I decided since i like my 98 RL premium @ 208,000 mileage so much and I'm unaware of it's maintenance history I would go ahead and put in a timing belt kit. I ordered a Gates timing belt kit w/ water pump (Gates TCKWP279) thinking it close enough to OE. But after reading a lot of complaints of people getting Chinese pumps in certain kits I'm questioning whether or not I should use this kit or not when it gets here tomorrow. Anyone have a hands on experience using this Gates kit? Or the quality of their water pumps etc they are putting in these kits.
