"Too much" output transformer?
I have a Mission 5E3 kit mutant that I've set up to run 6L6s and a 5V4 rectifier, removed the Zener and installed two 10" speakers. I'm also planning to make it switchable betwen fixed and cathode bias.  
 
But, I'd like a bigger, beefier output tranny.  
 
I've found a few good candidates but before I pull the trigger....  
 
Can one install an output transformer that's too big? What are the disadvantages?
