Hello, the R22 coil is rated for 150 lbs pressure, the R410a runs 100 lbs higher pressure at times... the main issue though is the POE oil in the new system scours out dirt and debris from the old R22 tubing and can easily precipitate leaks. 50% chance you will have a leak.

I am a retired mechanical engineer and HVAC/ electrical/refrigeration and boiler contractor ... with 56 years in this business. The last 20 of those years consulting for major firms nationally.
