Check out Crutchfield.com they have an excellent selection of OEM interfaces, wiring adapters, etc. No cutting, no testing, just plug in & go.

all you need is the 16 pin plug, pretend the 20 pin isn't even there.

This is what I'm using to continue the harness that came w/my head unit so that I can plug it in to the factory harness head:
Metra 70-1771 Radio Wiring Harness

This one also has the 20 pin head:
Scosche FDK9B

I think that the 20 pin head
1)connects the 3.5 aux input plug to the radio
2)ties the OE radio into the factory amp when present.
3)and then it has a chassis ground

So I guess it's only useful for reconfiguring the 20 pin block to tie into the built in 3.5 aux-in jack if you have one and still want to use it.
