I have a 93 G20 and there seems to be a multitude of Metra install kits available for these vans. The original stereo is long gone.

What is the correct Metra Kit to use?

For my '92, I used the one that Crutchfield suggested (Metra P/N 90-3044P).
It worked like a charm for the Pioneer DEH-X8700BH single din head unit I installed.

Just ordered the dash kit from Crutchfield and the harness from Amazon. Now to decide on a stereo. I don't need bluetooth or satellite capabilities.

Blue tooth is almost always in new head units. Pioneer and Sony are always good choices.

Pioneer more than likely. I've always been a fan of their stuff.

Crutchfield is awesome. Their customer service has always been great, and I've never had a bad dealing with them in all the years I've dealt with them. Their main store front is only about 20 mins from me in case any of you guys ever need anything from them or just need me to drop in with a question or anything.

Crutchfield is 100% awesome. I was pretty stumped when it came to figuring out the simplest way to put the system I wanted in my van (head unit and amp running six speakers - two in the dash and four in back) so I gave them a call and the person I spoke with got me all set up with the right stuff.

I got the kit today. One thing I like about it is that it's specifically made for the Chevy vans and not some universal POS.
