Default 2003 GT Timing Belt Which Tensioner?

I am starting to think about changing my timing belt (70k on current belt) however looking online and it seems there may be two different style timing belt tensioners (one with bracket and one with out). Is there any way to know what my 03 GT has without taking the belt cover off and looking?

My 02 was just the spring loaded tensioner with no bracket, but obviously that was n/a.

Thank you in advance.

Ugh, I had to do mine last year too. If i remember right its actually a recommended upgrade. Somewhere here there is some write ups about it.
I know I didnt directly answer it, but Im pretty sure they are both viable options.
