Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here, but most nice head units with a MOFSET are putting out more power per channel than the factory amp. So wouldn't the amp be cutting down the wattage? I installed components in the front of mine and we totally skipped the amp and wired them straight to the Pioneer head unit. They were louder than the stock stereo ever was.

Also, I wouldn't waste your money just to have a head unit installed. If you can't use butterknives to get the old one out, go to your local car stereo place. Tell them that you either want to buy the removal tools, or in most cases they will just unlatch it for you and slide it out like a half-inch so you can drive it home and just pop it out when you're ready. $60 for a head unit install is money that could be better spent elsewhere.
