Any specific kit I should get?
wal-mart wiring kit will be just fine..
I don't know a specific one you should get. I just bought a monster cable kit because it was real cheap off eBay. But, whatever you get just make sure it has 8awg or larger wire and you probably need a 30-40amp fuse.

do it once, do it right. Go with 4awg.
streetwires is decent if you want to stick with 8awg. Otherwise knuconteptz is awsome stuff, but pricey.
Usually teh RCAs and fuse holders that come in kits are junk, so you might just wanna piece one together yourself.
wonton, what amplifier is the kit for? And how long will the power and ground cables have to be?
4awg isn't really necessary for 300watts unless it is a long cable run. I would agree with you however if he plans on making future upgrades that will draw more power. Theoretically you would have to about double the length of a wire that originally was 8awg to require 4awg based on R = rho*(L/A)
I might add an amp and sub in the future. What kit should I get?
I am using the Soundstream to power the front components. Not sure where I want to mount the amp yet.
Trunk floor or back of the seat is probably your best bet. You could theoretically mount it under one of the front seats, but then there's potential heat issues...and since you're asking a question like this, I'm assuming this is your first install, so a little advice. Even if this means re-running all your wiring, run your power wires down one side and your RCA's down the other. Having them cross, or even near each other, will distort the signal.
any opinions on this kit?
That amp kit should work great.
