Have you tried talking to Diode Dynamics, one of our fine vendors on this site. I have used them for all of our vehicles and they are very knowledgeable on such things. I have their HID bulbs in my 2010 SS.
I understand the problem you are having with the wire and connectors and maybe they have heard of this before and might have an answer or suggestion.
