    the removal keys and fascia adapters are correct, but I doubt you wanna run an 1.1kW amp using 8 gauge cable. 8 gauge is 40 amp, so perfect for 300-400wrms, if the amp is truly that powerful then you'll need at least 4 gauge.
    You'll also need a antenna amp adapter to power the aerial amp:

    Presumably you are bypassing the puny rear/sub amp so you won't need the additional PC9-404 amp adapter.
    Running power through the bulkhead is pretty easy, instructions are here:
