Alpine Stereo Instal

I'm not too stereo literate, but tomorrow I'm getting an Alpine installed. It will allow for ipod play, plugin and everything else. The guy has only installed a few Porsches over the years but he has a reputation of honesty in this area. He's done a lot of research for this install on my behalf and wants to do it right. After the install the unit will be able to read my ipod directly from the stereo, will have a charger to keep it charged in the event I keep the ipod in the car. (not my intentions but hey, you never know.)

Is there anything I should advise him on in the install? Is there anything I should caution him about, e.g. electronics, MAf and the like? He seemed to be worried about my Porsche radio code in case he cant install it in a few hours, so I"ll have something to play in the event he's missing parts and needs to delay the install. I don't care about that since I rarely use the Porsche in this weather, so I could careless about listening to a radio in the immediate future.

ANy thoughts or cautions?
