The 20 pin connector to provide power to the amp is still intact in the car. Here's a pic of your amp rack:

The L7 20 pin connector is in down in the cavity forward (towards the wheel well) of the DA2. Just unplug that from the Technic connector, plug it in to the L7 amp, plug the MOST connector in to the L7 amp and you should be good to go.
thanks Tom!

ah yes, I see now that the MOST jacket is there and I can remove it from the L7 amp (didn't realize that is what was referred to as the jacket). also found a MOST network cable in the box of manuals you gave me and think I see how it comes together or at least it's making a bit more sense now. will see what I can do when I get back to the shop with the L7 amp.
