get the factory harness adapter from metra or scosche. that gives you an easier way to connect it and should have the same colors as the jensen does.

you will need a wiring harness, dash kit, and antenna adapter to install it. you can get them from a car audio shop or online from crutchfield or sonicelectronix.

here are the metra parts

would a powered antenna adapter be a good idea to get longer range of radio stations and more clear sounding?

shouldn't be needed. it won't increase range, just just if you need to amplify the signal to receive it at all. some euro vehicles don't get am with an aftermarket headunit and need it.
