That should work great, you may want to stick a korilia 240 behind the scape still just to ensure nothing collects back there, but the gyre might be enough, just keep an eye on it. Jaebo makes some nice adjustable pumps for an affordable price too

This cost me about 130 but with this I can use one or 2 propellers I can do pretty much everything I need with this since I can select the strength and other wise I was gonna have to get 2 and pay 40 a piece and the koralia controller thing came out cheaper this way

Each coral is different. Your rock obviously affects your flow as well. I can tell you that the ice cap should be more than enough. Once you set up the ice cap play with the placement and set the flow you THINK you will like. If possible try to plan ahead on what corals you want. Figure out there flow and par needs. Try and figure out ahead of time where you want them in your tank. You'll still have to adjust flow. It can take months to get par and flow dialed in for some reefers. My current build is on month 5 and I just now feel like I got it right. Nothing happens fast in a reef tank.
