Yea, but when i checked it in heating mode my suction went through the roof (over 400 ) I can deal with the a/c but for heating???

You have to plug your gauges Hi side to suction and low side to the common tap

What is the common tap?
Expert:  Gaztech replied 8 months ago.

Put it this way,in heat mode the red hose goes to the big copper pipe, and the blue hose goes to the other tap, not on the small copper line, you should see a 3rd tap coming out of casing right next to the valves
