987 clutch in a 986?

Working with a 2001 Boxster 2.7 5 speed. So I was told that I can put a 987 clutch in my 986, since I was replacing my clutch anyway, (see previous post), I went on a hunt for a 987 S clutch. I found a Sachs unit, part # K70290-01 which just arrived today, but by looking at it, I am not sure this is the right kit.

Does anyone have any experience in this swap? Did I order the wrong kit? You can see from the pic that the friction disk and plate have obviously less surface material than the original unit, the bearing diameter on the new plate is different too, and the height is taller in the new one as well.

987 6-speed clutch disc is not interchangable with any 986 disc, 5 or 6 speed trans.

I was told the set I ordered was a 5 speed set, is the K70290-01 set for a 6 speed?

So I have been doing some digging and have found two different part #s for the 987 5 speed clutch set, Sachs #K70424-01 and #K70193-01.

Which one is a correct 987 5 speed set for my 2001?

Why not got to Sach's website and look it up for yourself: http://www.zf.com/media/media/document/int_print_catalogs_documents/usa_4/ZF_ClutchKit_Application.pdf

So by reading the parts index, I see the same kit is being used for the 986 and 987 up to 2008, including the Cayman 2.7? So does that mean that all 986 5 speed kits sold by Sachs automatically get the 987 clutch and pressure plate, or does that mean all the 2004-08 987 kits get a 986 kit? So why does everyone say changing to a 987 disk and plate is an upgrade?
