hey all,

what i would like to do is mount a new head unit into my 98 sts. i know that the stereo is part of the computer system and that i cannot remove it. so what i am thinking is that i could remove the 6 pack changer and put an aftermarket stereo there, and have a cable made so that i can mount the face plate up by the factory stereo.

so what i need to know is how does the factory deck interface with the amplifier. does it use rca cables? i once had an old mazda 626 that used something like a 10 pin connector for its hookup - everything in one.

i would really like an mp3 player in the car, and haven't really needed the 6 pack. so it seems like a good idea.
