Which clutch kit is correct?

Now that I have to replace my clutch, I'm looking at what is available

I found a couple of Sachs kits for my 04 986 S. The problem is, I don't know which one is correct!

The part numbers I found are:

3000 951 201
K7029001
98611691102
18014-05057243
W0133-1598018
52-40065 ZF

What is the correct one??
Will more than one work? If so, what is the difference between them?

I have found them from $325 to around $600

2 suggestions:
1.Check the Pelican site and call them.They are very helpful
2004 Porsche Boxster S Convertible - Clutch & Flywheel - Page 1
2. Research how to check the DMF and test yourself. Many mechanics do not know how to do it correctly.If you fail to replace a worn DMF it may quickly become a quite different but serious issue.

Hello.

SACHS K7029001 is the same part as 98611691102 and the correct one for your 2004 S.

I replaced the dual mass flywheel on my Cayman and my Boxster when I did the clutch job. For the money I figured it was good insurance. I really didn't want to go back in there anytime soon.

You'll be amazed at how beautifully these clutches work when everything is brand new.

Good luck.
