Also that pump seems over kill, your solution might be to switch to a pump of half that volume 149 US gallon tank you would want a 600-650 GP/H pump, but the 2"/ 1-1/2'' /2" line will still be a problem.

you could just stick a half inch bit of pipe into the over flow and make sure the top of the half inch is above water line find some diy way to make it stay and not fall down the pipe and then there is only a 1 an half inch gap for water

but as others have stated that flow rate is insane imo

Thanks but this thread was nearly 2 years ago !

That tank split and was sold on ebay over a year ago ... I ditched the sump idea and now run a tetratec EX2400 external .. Much better.
