It’s easy to make a new PTFE hose to your specific length. About the only issue I tend keep in mind is use the same fitting manufacturer as the hose manufacturer. Personally I try and keep everything Fragolia, so I don’t intermix.
Race Part Solutions should have any ancillary attachments?
As far as the age of the hose, with the added information that it already degraded and started to leak. Why are you adding extra fittings to makeup the length you cutback?
Risk of oil leaking is substantial with that old line. Best case it’s a nuisance leak. Worst case it either, starts a fire, starved your turbo, oils down your tires or possibly the guy behind you.
Start fresh with a new hose.
