The jacket material does impact the overall sound, but not to a large degree.
It is subtle, and somewhat depends on the actual construction of the cable, whether it is coax, twinax, etc.
In my experience, coax is affected more than other geometries, but this is somewhat dependent on the amount of braid shielding. Since you have "taken the cable apart", the braid can "come loose" and will no longer have the stated percentage of shield coverage per the original specs.
Spacing the PET techflex away with some teflon plumbers tape will help ameliorate the effects of the PET, but not totally.
Good luck with your project, and remember to try and physically constrain the cables mechanically against vibration and relative movement between the materials.
