There is no rule against them that I know of.
BUT, be sure to read the rules yourself so you have a good understanding of them.

Both radiator and vacuum. I need to replace a few hoses. The car was in a fire and most of the rubber is brittle and the plastic distorted. Lindsey Racing have all the hoses in silicone for about 20% more than the rubber items. I'm not planning to use all the hoses in silicone but there are a couple hoses they created to bypass the heater that I may use.

The most applicable section of the rules is here: Aftermarket parts designed and sold as direct replacements for stock genuine Porsche original
equipment parts with no change in performance or weight may be used and will be considered
“stock” for the purposes of these rules.
"

"change in performance" might be debated here, but I am going to make the call it's not material here, and your intent is durability alone. That said new hoses rarely are an issue.
Thanks for asking- wise to do in these areas!
