Aftermarket radio head unit

Im looking at getting an aftermarket radio for my car, but I have run into a problem. When I get to the checkout, it asks me if I have a "Mustang" or a "Mustang (mach audio)" in order to purchase the correctly fitting harness. I checked both seperate harnesses, and they have different part numbers (fdk9 and fdk13). I was under the impression that all mustangs came with "mach audio" and it does not specify if it means mach 1000 or 460. At the same time, I dont know if I have a 460 or not. My friends 1999 v6 says "mach 460" on the small speakers by the windows, while my 2002 GT only says "mach audio". I figure I should get the one labeled accordingly, but I want to make sure.
The specific radio I am looking at is here: Pioneer AVH-P3300BT (avhp3300bt) 5.8" In-Dash Double DIN

2002 Ford Mustang GT Mineral Grey
-JLT RAI, Borla Stinger carback, Corbeau CR1's.
1996 Ford Exploder XLT winter beater
1992 Ford Festiva "Go Kart"
-Death Trap, 12" "Premium" aluminum wheels, 45 MPG!

The reason they ask is because the non Mach systems don't have amps that you'll need to wire to a harness. I'm not sure how different a mach 460 and 1000 harness would be, but to be totally sure, check behind your back seat and if you see 2 amps on the ceiling of your trunk, then it's a mach system

I think the mach audio is the same as the 460, my speaker grills say mach audio and I got the 460 harness and worked fine for me. Do you have amps in the back?
