    Or write a huge disclaimer!

    That old evap was designed for high head pressures of the old low efficiency units. Only way to make that coil work is overcharge the he!! out of it to boost the head way up to get proper refrigerant flow through the evap. What's that do to electric usage? What's that do to compressor life?

    thanks for the reply

    thought with a two ton being so small would not make that big of a difference but i will take your advise and tell em I will definitely need to change the evap also, otherwise i will not do the job
    thank's again
