I would disconnect your current amp if there is water damage to prevent it from back-feeding the car or something to that effect.

That's the cheapest I was able to find it online. It's really a top notch high quality amp. Personally I wouldn't go aftermarket but that's up to you.
Make me a reasonable offer and it's yours.
Mike... that OEM amp will not work in that car without extra parts and custom wiring. The OP's is in exactly the same situation as yours: the current EPS OEM amp in the car is the old version, the one that you got is the latest version with the power separated from the 20-pin connector.
