but i've seen this one



which one is right?

Top one. I think the bottom one is a newer version, but I was unable to verify it on the online honda parts site. It is a photo I found here on the forum.

Your top picture is the serpetine belt tensioner, the second pic is the EP3 idler which mounts to the tensioner, you need both.

exactly what are you trying to accomplish and what accessories do you want/need? p/s? a/c? etc?

If running a normal pulley setup then you need the tensioner. If you do not plan to run power steering, then you need the ep3 idler pulley.

Verify what? The top pic is the auto tensioner. The bottom pic is the ep3 idler pulley as stated...
