You just take out the current deck, and din mount the new one on the left side of where the original one was. You will need a trim piece the put in there so that the 1 inch gap on the right isnt a big hole :P
Such kits can be found at any installer's shop, just get one to sell you one of theirs, or you can buy them online. I know Scosche (sp?) and Manta (i think?) make them.
If you want the deck centered, you will have to cut a small piece of plastic down there and get a custom trim piece. I highly suggest you take the car to a proffessional audio shop for this kind of installation.
Oh, note that, if you replace the factory unit, you lose steering wheel controls for the radio There is an aftermarket product that can fix this problem, called the Pac Audio SWI-X; which depending on where you mount the IR eye, may not work half the time.

Blitzsafe also makes adapters so you can plug a music keg into the factory CD changer plug.

or you could just buy a phatbox from phatnoise as the music keg is a licenced from phatnoise.
the phatboxes are meant to be hooked into many OEM system.

I would call ahead and confirm that they do, and if they dont, ask them to order one and set you up with an appointment or refer you to someone who has the kit in-stock.
