Rheem RHPL 2 ton air handler

Does anyone know what the highest MERV rated filter I can install in this air handler? I don't want to restrict the flow beyond its capability. Other suggestions for filters are open too

Its more the duct than anything if you have two main return ducts coming into your unit you can use two higher merv filters than you can with one return (if filters go into the duct). The duct size matters as well. If this is going into the unit then normally around a merv 6 if this is bigger than 1inch you can go to a higher merv as well.

Thanks. The filter is going into the unit itself with one return duct (16x10) into the unit. The supply duct is 19.5x10. The filter is 20x20x2.

Is MERV 11 or 13 too much?
