My existing electrical box is currently 100 AMPS, the wire that feeds the box is smaller than 2/0 but is copper. If I put in 200 Amps panel box and use the same amount of breakers and not change anything (I know it is not suppose to be legal) what if anything will happen...would there be a problem or danger? What are your thoughts on this?
