    What exactly did you fit,where did you run the power wire, did you disconnect anything to run the power wire, Is it struggling to start or is it the idle?

    The only thing I can think off is check your idle control valve
    Your car cannot handle a driver of this magnitude!

    shot in the dark but... could your radio be sucking to much power from the alernator? perhaps the alternator is on its way out, or perhaps your battery is?

    just a few ideas

    Very very much doubtful that it's stereo related,was it an ISO connection fit or cut wires? I to would concur with idle control valve.

    first thing first is , get the idea that the radio will of caused this seen it so many times n its 95% of the time not related to what someone fitted . just bad coinsidence.

    first thing i would try is check airpipe from airbox into idle valve/ butterfly. then i would check underneath the butterfly there should be a wee pin hole there i have seen them clogging up and causin alot of problems .
