Figured Id reply my conclusions to this thread, in case someone ever searches and is looking for the same information.
I removed both in/out hoses at the firewall. Cut them a couple inches back, and replaced the stupid quick connects with normal 5/8 heater hose (and barbs to connect to original hoses). Used hose clamps to tighten them down, and they sealed perfectly. Cost me about 15$, as oppose to the right kidney that the dealership wanted.
