Short answer is no. Without an ASK you won't have the integration. This model uses a very particular version of MOST. My advise. Get an ASK. If you want to hook up an after-market amp. Get a DSP AMP and connect it tot the rear shelf speaker leads in the trunk.

sounds like a nightmare. Pretty sure to put the car right will cost more than your paying for the car.
