It's not the Brand with the fewest repairs-It's all in the install!!! Attention to detail and using the best materials!

as long as they are the same style valve the thread sizes will be the same.

If someone is willing to do the work, and someone else is willing to pay for it, anything is possible. If the connections are different, it SHOULD be possible to cut out the metering device from the old coil and hack it onto the new one, if that is what you want.
It should also be a possibility to get a brand new R22 txv from the same parts house that is selling the evaporator that the technician will know for sure to be compatible.
