Stereo settings question

Not a GTO owner, but I got a chance to drive one that belonged to a friend the other day. We were trying to figure out how to change the settings of the speed-sensitive volume on the stock stereo, but the fool only had the owner's manual from the car he just traded in, not the GTO. Anyone can help?

i did mine right after i got my car because it drove me crazy...right when you turn the car on it says(in the info center under the speedometer) to scroll up or down for options. one of those options should be what you're looking for. let me know if you cant find it and ill actually go out to the car and give u the exact intructions.

Don't forget to do the 5 minute freebie amp mod to make it sound 100X better!

How do I go about doing this? Just got my GTO yesterday and I am wanting to make the radio sound better.

open the trunk...pull out the tabs on the left side pull the carpet down some. reach your hand around the metal piece and attached to the back of that is the factory amp. feel around it and you should be able to feel a round knob. adjust this until you are happy with the sound. not gonna be GREAT, but will at least be better.
