help with clutch selection/installation please

Looking to replace the slipping clutch in my 2001 7.3 6 speed.

first, i'm looking for some direction in what would be the best clutch for me. I'm looking at southbend, but a little confused about what i want.
HTML Code:
http://www.thoroughbreddiesel.com/south-bend/powerstroke-99-03.html
i'm thinking the 375 or 400hp model is enough for me, i have a php chip (140hp max) and a mbrp 4" straight pipe which alleges +20hp, so i should be in that range. Do i want more clutch? no plans for additional power.

Why does one of these come with a solid flywheel conversion kit, and the other doesn't? from reading, i understand that i have a solid flywheel, not a dual?

do i need any additional parts to do the work, or will everything be included? any other parts i should consider while i've got things apart, or parts that might need to be replaced that will stall my project?

Lastly, is anyone aware of a write-up for the process? I'm new to clutch replacement but confident i can handle it with some direction. besides, i can't afford to pay someone right now.

Any help would be appreciated, i need to get something on order so i can get the repair done before vacation in a few weeks.

Thanks

Just did one in my 2000 6 speed, its fairly straight forward. The transmission is quite large and pretty heavy so be ready with proper support. I rented a transmission jack locally for $35 a day or $90 a week which was worth it to me.

Here's a walk through I found useful.

Get the updated clutch fork if you don't have it already, mine snapped while driving, hence the need to start the clutch project. I changed the plastic pivot for the fork too, think it was $8.00 at the dealer. All discussed in the how to.

Feel free to message me if you think I can help.
