Angry Turbo feed hardline kinked and broke, wtf do i do

As the title states, when i was removing the turbo (i had to pull the motor, had it built) the hardline that goes on top of the turbo to feed it kinked badly. Then when i went to bend it back, snapped. What ive tried so far temporarily is a PVC black rubber hose line and tried clamping it to feed line where it snapped and then the banjo bolt part. Wont hold a seal. Doesnt work, just leaks oil out the tube or blows the line off. This is a jdm ej205 block (2001). The hard line goes under the intake manifold and i would have to remove it again to replace it.

Just to clarify some things:
The motor is back in the engine bay so im not pulling it again.

The metal connection that seperates the line (it like screws together) isnt a thing anymore. Thats not an option.

Are there any kits that i could get oil to the turbo from somewhere else?? Can i just plug that feed? or something? This is so aggravating.

You could probably order the oem part: https://parts.subaru.com/

No guarantee a part like that would ship quickly though. That said, I did order all new hardware for the turbo to dp connection and the dp to mid pipe connection on my wagon, and those arrived within a week even though they were special order. I can't imagine those bolts and nuts I ordered are something people order often either.

You could also look on craigslist/offerup for people parting out their subies.

All else fails, you could try a wrecker or pick-a-part.

Piece together a -4 line using SS braided hose and some fittings. Takes some time to figure out what kind of fittings you want, and it will be well worth the effort.

Why cobble stuff together instead of just sucking it up and doing it right seems like a waste of time to do it any other way and thatís coming from a flat rate Audi tech **** happens but it will bite you in the ass to waste time finding some hack solution

Do you have enough line and clearance to use a flaring tool? You might be able to drop an AN fitting on then flare the existing line. That's what the mid way OEM coupling was to being with iirc.

All you need is a new turbo feed line.

Something like this.
