Adding SSD Drive to PCIe model

Can anyone assist with what parts I would need to add an SSD to a Mac Mini 2014 that came with a PCIe 512 GB drive?

I'd like to make it a dual drive setup, but can't confirm what part is needed to do so. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you already have the PCIe SSD then you're adding a SATA drive (either a HD or a SSD) You'll need the to follow this IFIXIT guide Mac mini Late 2014 Hard Drive Cable Replacement and need this part & tool kit: Mac mini Dual Drive Kit. Be careful here! The size of the drive needs to physically fit (12 mm is about it).

If you have a SATA HD already then you'll want this: either the drive carrier with the SSD cable mounted Hard Drive Carrier w/ SSD Flex Cable - Apple P/N 076-00040 or the cable its self Cable, SSD Flex - Apple P/N 076-00018

Here's the IFIXIT guides:

Dan, If I already have a fusion drive in there will I need any of these replacement parts, or can I just substitute the respective PCIe and 2.5 inch drives for the existing ones?

You'll need to make a full backup before doing anything.

First step is to break the Fusion Drive following this How to split up a Fusion Drive.

And yes, all of the needed hardware sans the replacement drive/s is present.

But before you jump what is your goals here?
