Simple question before i shoot it

I have a 94 ford powerstroke the idler pully froze up. Got into it to replace there is a bolt up front that is very tough to get to. I can't tell if it is allen or torq and thought I would just ask what size and type it is. I would greatly appreciate the help to frustrated bedating hitting it in the head.

I had seen on another site that this is a T-50 (Torx).
It was also stated that just trying to twist it out probably wouldn't work. You will have to get the driver in the hole, then bang/beat on it to loosen up the threads before trying to remove the bolt, or you could end up breaking it off. (Maybe shooting it with some penetrating oil several times ahead of trying the removal will help also).
Hope this helps.
