Purchased a second catch can for my intake side to match my drivers side. Since it wasn't meant for that side, I have to buy longer hoses. I've heard mixed reviews on using heater hose from local auto stores, but upon feeling the material it feels a whole lot sturdy than the OEM hose which is soft and squishy by comparison.

THOUGHTS? As they say heater hose has a low resistance to oil but its just oil vapor right?

Or if anyone can point me a direction where I can find oil safe lines

I used Fuel Hose for my intake side. Found it just at the local parts store. The good thing about the fuel hose is the internal braiding so it won't collapse or break down easily.

True. I called NAPA and there fuel hoses meet and exceed SAE 30R6 which is perfect as it is safe for oil/gas and good for 25in kg of vac

For the larger hose I use heater hose. It will get hard and not squishy. The smaller hoses I use fuel line hose.

Ended up going to NAPA
PN H177 which is 3/8 ID hose. I didn't get the 1/2 ID PN.

It meets/exceeds SAE 30R6 standards which is good for any amount of boost our car can put out, good for 100 C and good for -25mmHg vac
SPECS
Nitrile-based tube provides exceptional resistance to a variety of fuel systems
Cover compound provides exceptional oil, heat, ozone and weathering resistance

P.S Drivers side catch can from AGP also fits on passenger side perfectly
