i am not an expert, but if the coil is a differnt size i dont think it will work. just like any other refrigerant they should be matched for capacity. what about the txv? . let me know if this helps. maybe you can talk to the mfg. of the unit and see if you can use it.

The pressures that 410 runs at are higher than the testing pressures for r-22. In teh long run if it does work you will require many expensive repairs to the U tubes of your evaporator........Good luck
