I ordered the carrier 15k unit, all reports are very positive on this unit, it sprays the condensate water onto the coils to increase efficiency and to reduce run off and apparently can be fitted to the existing pan.

I used PPL motor out of texas, they have a warehouse here in Atlanta so we saved shipping costs. Will let you know how the install goes.

I think you don't use a pan with the carriers. I think they have a built in pan which you need to modify to connect to the drain lines.
This thread has some discussion:

Also there are some pictures here:

There maybe better sources, maybe someone else will chime in.

Update on my ac replacement progress. We removed the existing unit and since the pan was no longer needed I removed the existing pan. It was stuck down with copious amounts of vulkem so removal was somewhat of an effort. I then removed the vulkem and wire brushed the area where the new seal fits. This created and good surface for the new seal.

(In hindsight I think I could of just trimmed up the existing pan to be slightly larger than the Carrier gasket rather than removing it.)

Some effort then spent to straighten the roof panel where it was bent or warped. The roof has a curve to it and the gasket of the Carrier Unit is flat so I used a belt sander to give the front and rear gaskets a slight bow and then placed the unit in the hole. I used vulkem under the gasket to give me more piece of mind for leaks, I will run a bead around the outside later.

The interior shroud also needs to be trimmed up to fit the curved roof as it is flat and the ceiling is curved, another couple of hours should finish this project up.
