Since you already have an after-market HU in your car, you should be able to swap it fairly easily.  If this is a stock HU, get the proper wiring harness adapter for your car before you begin.  Metra 70-1720 and the dash kit if you need it is (I believe) 99-7892.

Yes, you can simply swap the important wires like: +12V battery; Switched +12V; speakers (shuld be eight wires for four speakers); Remote turn-on; ground.  That will allow the HU to function.  Before you begin, pull the positive battery cable off your battery.  If there are RCA connections, these are also easily swapped.
