Default Will a 3.5 ton compressor work in a 3 ton unit or is it too big?

My friend that is in the industry got me a lead on a new compressor for my 3 ton carrier unit. Its a brand new compressor someones selling for cheaper than retail. Never been out of the box.

Anyway the numbers all match up, its the same except its for a 3.5 ton unit. Will it still work or is it too big? They think it will still work but I want to get a second or third opinion. Thanks!
