Any other way to check the timing belt (other than taking it apart again?)

I did take the left and right timing covers off (easy) and made sure it hadn't skipped a teeth. You can't get to the crankshaft mark, but you can check that camsprocket marks are aligned. It won't hurt to count the number of teeth between camsprocket marks (add up numbers) and ensure they are okay too.

I took the car on the high way, at around 100km with RPM 2100-2200, I would feel some kind of shake or vibaration, but as soon as I push the gas and the RPM increases, it feels OK again.
The car otherwise drives OK. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your reply. I decided to check the "simple things" first. Sure enough, one of the spark plug wire is lose from the spark plug possiblly got lose during my work. So I have been running the car with some misfires. The shake is because the misfire. I have made the connectiong good and now the car is running silky smooth.
I also changes the water pump, t-stat, front oil seals in addition to the timing belt. Since it is my first time working on Subaru so it is a learning experience for me. I am glad I did it. I am sure for the next Subaru, It will be much easier.
