How can I add an 18 SEER/12 HSPF ASHP to BEopt?

I'm designing for colder climates, and would like to model an 18 SEER/12 HSPF variable speed heat pump (like a Bryant Evolution Extreme or Carrier Infinity with Greenspeed) for the ~20% better winter performance than the only variable speed pump in the default library which is 22 SEER/10 HSPF. Unfortunately, I am having difficulty locating all of the values that the BEopt option manager requires. I'd be happy with some reasonable approximation of the correct values, but as far as I'm able to make out from the specs, the COP for these devices seems to be worse than those for the existing library entry...

Bryant and Carrier spec sheets.

Thanks!
