Aftermarket audio head unit?

I'm very interested in an '05 GTO, but I notice that navigation isn't an option. As such I'd like to have an aftermarket Pioneer AVIC-N2 installed. When I look at the Crutchfield website I get the following

Quote:
Modified Fit - Requires Modification

Installation Details for your 2005 GTO

Caution! You will need to modify your vehicle to install this product. We strongly recommend contacting a Crutchfield Sales Advisor to discuss your installation and your options. Modifications may include cutting wires, plastic, or metal, and may include fabricating brackets, panels, or other parts, and the installation instructions or guides we may be including do not cover these modifications. Once your vehicle has been modified, it may not be possible to return it to the factory specs or appearance.
You will need to fabricate a mounting kit in order to install your new receiver.
Anyone know exactly what is involved here?

Probably a lot, but I know one guy in VA has a Black 05 with a touch screen deck/navi in place of the stock unit. Looks clean, so it can be done.

Pioneer AVIC-N2

I have the Pioneer AVIC-N1 (only difference is software) installed in my 04. It fits nicely with the dash kit. I had the dealership install it before I took the car. It leaves a little tray underneath. If you are interested, I will post pics.

Please do. I've been interested in such a thing as well.

VERY interested.

I'd also be interested to hear what the dealer charged you for the install and how you went about having them do it.

Do it, I'm interested as well. I'd like the ease of an aftermarket deck and add a nice JL sub to the mix and run all of my highs to my speakers, seems the speakers aren't bad stock, just the lows running to them right now makes them sound like ass.

you know, to fix that you can get a capacitor. I would recomment a 250hz one on the fronts to see if it cancels out enough lows. If not you can go to maybe 6 or 800hz one. The best part? They cost about .45 each.

I've got the Kenwood flip screen with nav in my car. Stereo shop installed, very clean but pricey.

Will the resistor trick give me better mid or high range? and do you use one per speaker or two (both leads)?
