How is the Disco matrix sealed to the pipes that traverse the firewall?

Could the rubber hoses connect to the matrix inside the firewall rather than ouside, i just think the more difficult they make diy repaires the more likely you'll take it to the dealers

Hi,

I´m thinking to put rubber hose to connect the matrix to the engine or do a mix between the stock pipes and rubber hose. The thing is, I want a connection that I trust and not that orings that fails when you less expect... I want to solve this reability things for good.
