Does anyone know if a stock stereo (head unit) from a 2000 GT-S will fit a 2001 GT? If so, are there any additional modification/harnesses needed?

thanks in advance

Thanks for the response, but why does it not fit?
Is it because the unit will not physically fit into the center console?
Or is it because the harness/pins are not compatible between a GT & GTS?

physically, it will fit...it's the harness...main because gts have an external amp in the glove box, so the power source is outbound. the gt HU have built-in amp, so the wiring harness in the back directly goes right to the speakers.

it would be a huge hassle to interchange the two, mainly the wiring issues...

TC's HU also have built-in amp so it's very much in the same concept as the GT's HU...
