Default Trying to clear CEL

Right now I'm running an Amuse R1000 and in order to install the exhaust I had to move the charcoal box towards the center of the car. Longer hoses were provided but I don't think they're evap hoses because I keep getting a check engine light and the code comes back "evap leak/small leak" First I tried to change the clamps to the ones you tighten with a wrench, but still no luck. Tomorrow I'm going to go pick up the same oem charcoal box hoses from nissan and what I was planning to do was take the "old ones" and connect them with the new ones so everything will be oem. If anyone has any other ideas or what to use to connect them with would be greatly appreciated. I keep clearing the light but it comes back every couple of days...as soon as I can go a week without any CEL ill go tune the car.

I had just relocated my my evap Sunday. So far no issues. Didn't have any issue when I relocated mine on my 350. I would go over the system again. I did have one hose that could of been an issue if I left it. Can't recall which one. But it's the short fat one that has bends already in it. I think it comes from the fuel tank. But don't hold me to that.

I had to replace it with another due to it was to short and didn't want to cheat each side to make it work. Plus it was putting a mild kink in the hose. So check that out also. Plus you might have a pin hole. Not sure if that would cause to throw a cel. My Greddy kit did come with a replacement hose but it wasn't for that particular line. It also came with a supplied inline adapter to connect the hose that was needed to be extended. The one I replaced had to be a hose with a 90 degree bend. I also used the screw type clamps that came with the exhaust kit.

I also don't believe there are hose specifically for the evap. Also, how close is the line to the current exhaust? Might need some exhaust heat shied wrap around the hose closes to the exhaust.
