If you are talking the factory heater hose setup, then you are probably stuck going with the GM replacement. I swapped ours out back in 2010 or so when the original setup was 8 years old and it did cost about $200. A lot of guys simply yank the stock stuff though and run regular heater hose. Using a reflective heat wrap is a good idea to protect the hoses from the exhaust if you go this route.
