Clutch Question for 2002 Boxster S 6 Speed

Hey Guys,

So I'm shopping around for a regular 3 Piece Clutch kit for a 2002 Porsche Boxster S - 6 Speed manual. Here are a few questions I have.

1. Does the regular Porsche Boxster Share the same clutch as a Porsche Boxster S?

2. Are there difference Clutches for different engine sizes? 2.7 vs 3.2?

3. I'm finding prices, ranging from 300 - 400 - 500! Can you please tell me if they are all the same. Any deals out there currently? Listed below from the least expensive to the most expensive. Let me know your thoughts please.

1. eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

2. Amazon.com: Sachs Clutch Kit: Automotive

3. Pelican Parts - Product Information: 986-116-911-02-M38

I used the eBay one in my 2.7, even came with a pilot bearing. No issues so far.

The part numbers are different for a 2.7 than a 3.2.

So I E-mailed him, and this is what he told me. He is basically saying, he is selling a 3.2 Clutch, and it should work on a 2002 Porsche Boxster S (6Speed)! Is that right?

That is the right clutch and that is a good price. I did a clutch / transmission rebuild (by Gbox) and an IMS retrofit, the link:

You my friend, do clean work. I wish you were in East coast, so I could drop my car off to you and know It's in good hands. Ugh..., finding Porsche mechanics has become a nightmare.
