Base stereo to Mach 460 swap questions

I have a 2004 V6 mustang and want to install a Mach 460 system in the car but I dont want to change my wiring harness under the dash, I have already changed the door speakers and rear deck box is installed, also I have a 6 disc radio/changer that needs to be installed. Can anyone help me with the problem on how to get power to the amps and what color wires to use and possibly what color wire is the auto turn on for amps the donor car was also a 2004 and the harness from the rear to the kick panel and under dash is installed in my car. Help Please because I would hate to lose 600$.... also if you want to send me a email and go into detail about this system I would def appreciate it, its been a long project that needs finished or jerked out!

you can use chiltons library for wiring diagram...

than coupe vs vert..

Any Suggestions? Chiltons wiring...

Chiltons wiring confuses me haha, my car is a coupe and the 460 came out an 04 cobra coupe what I was wondering if the original plug for the base sound system can be converted to power a mach system I have the big plug that came with the 460 and I dont wanna hack up my wiring so if someone could tell me a lil bit more I can get this thing up and going.

you need to look at the connectors in manual.it gives wire color and where it goes..

than you can move wires in connector
