    Your thinking is backwards.
    You want it to run a long cycle.

    64 is not realistic.

    Tell them you are not satisfied with the system they installed.
    Ask if they will remove it and refund your money.

    Yes it probably can be done.
    Install an R-22 compressor in the new condenser.

    Sounds like you don't need 2 tons of cooling capacity.
    And they were not doing you any favors by over sizing the evaporator coil - it will not de-humidify as well.
