That is the correct part, it is next to the oil filter. It has two power steering hoses going in. Only the electrical portion has to be switched out. The part can be ordered from Acura of Augusta. Also mention that you are from the forum and you can get a discount.

The VSS (vehicle speed sensor) is integrated to the power steering as well as the transmission to assist in knowing when it needs to change gears.

It is an easy straight forward repair. This is the first repair I have ever done in my Legend like 8 years ago. I made the mistake of putting in a whole used unit. It had the mechanical and electrical part. The sensor failed after a week or two. I highly suggest replacing only the electrical part with a new one. Only special tool involved is a torx bit. I don't remember what size exactly. I didnt have any at the time and had to buy the bit I needed.

Buy the OEM one from the first link. Plus it is cheaper also.

Seems the more expensive one is more complete and that the less expensive one is missing parts? Is it harder to install the less expensive one versus the complete one?

That's because the whole kit isn't needed and just the repair kit is needed.
