@arhowe00 - If you order an SSD only iMac you will be getting a blade SSD from Apple. You can verify what the given system has by going into System Report which you’ll find under the ‘About this Mac’ Look under Storage to see the drives, then open either SATA/SATA Express and NVMExpress sections.
Your system has two storage ports a SATA port which supports either a 3.5” or 2.5” drive and the PCIe/NVMe blade SSD port.
There’s two issues here to consider. The first is opening the system is a delicate operation if you are not careful you can damage the display. The second is if your system has a problem, Apple has been known to refuse servicing the system under warranty if they suspect user damage. So be sure you want to tackle upgrading your system.
-As to getting a second SSD installed this is not overly hard and depending on what your needs are it maybe quite beneficial! I often preach dual drive configs to improve performance for music, video, photo editing or even CAD work. Here we use the blade SSD as the boot drive with only the apps present on it leaving most of the drive empty! Thats so the OS can leverage it for Virtual RAM, caching, Paging, and scratch space. The second drive is the data drive.

Here we use the blade SSD as the boot drive with only the apps present on it and leaving most of the drive empty! Thats so the OS can leverage it for Virtual RAM, caching, Paging, and scratch space. The second drive is the data drive.
'''Now the rub!''' The drive cable you pointed to is for an older system (Late 2012 & Late 2013 A1419 - Apple P/N 923-0312). So far we don’t have access to a parts listing for the newest iMac so I can’t tell you what Apple has done if they have altered things. To help clarify, here is the newest version of the cable [https://www.thebookyard.com/product.php?cPath=34_166_524&products_id=16347|iMac 27" Retina 5K Hard Drive Combo Cable (L15/17)] Apple P/N 923-00664.
So basically, I can’t tell you if the Late 2015/17 cable will work in the newer 2019 model. It might but I can’t tell you for sure.
You will need to lift the logic board forward to gain access to the header to plug in the cable as Apple does not offer it within the system. So its a bit more work than what this guide implies [guide|30522] which is the best one we have currently.
So there is a risk here, you are just ahead of the rest!
It might make sense returning the OWC kit and instead look at getting something like this [https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/express-4m2?Source=18Jul9&utm_source=bm23&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Image+-+OWC+Express+4M2+with+Thunderbolt+3&utm_content=MS-+Express+4M2+Announcement|OWC Express 4M2] which lets you use faster M.2 SSD’s as well as offer more versatility with future expansion options.
