Lennox parts

I heard that Lennox ACs generally require OEM parts.

I have a heat pump (13HPD-036-230-01). AC tech diagnosed that the fan motor for compressor went bad. He then decided to replace it with a universal motor. Also, he couldn't use existing dual run capacitor. He ended up using one additional capacitor just for the fan.

I didn't check on RPM etc. Now I'm concerned if this generic motor will perform as well as OEM motor.

Do you guys know if all Lennox AC require Lennox parts (OEM) for replacement?

Aftermarket or shall we say non OE labeled brands should be fine as long as he's matched the ratings.
Does the fan or whole unit for that matter, sound the same?
