NTN is the OEM supplier of this part for Mitsubishi. So whether you purchase this tensioner in the original NTN box or repackaged as an Aisin (BTM-500) or Mitsubishi item (1145A070) - you're getting the exact same part; it even has NTN molded into the tensioner.
Monteros have timing belt driven interference engines that require a timing belt service every 60,000 miles. The 2nd most common reason that we see Monteros end up in junkyards (#1 being collision damage) is a blown engine resulting from a timing failure.
