G8 Radio in GTO

Probably a dumb question. Is there anyway I could get a G8 OEM radio to go in a GTO? I like to have the buttons work on the steering wheel and would also like to keep it a 6 cd changer.

Only if the plug pin-outs are the same. You'd have to find schematics for both HUs to compare. I'll help you out with the GTO side.


Current: MGW-p, H-pipe, SS OTRCAI, Lovell rear springs, Eliminator shocks and Pioneer AVH-P3300BT, JBA LTs+catless mids, Drilled/Slotted rotors, Kooks Afterburners, catch can & Tune Next: ??? Wish list: Intake & TB, modest cam, UDP, gears

It won't work.

The G8 is a Global A car, and the GTO is a UART car. So the serial data is different, lots of signals that are on the serial data and the new radio will miss out on those and not work.
