Plumbing a Quiet One 2200

I recently purchased a quiet one. My problem is the pump pushes too much water to much my overflow so I am goiglng to throttle it back using a gate valve. Will increasing the size of the return nozzle to a one inch PVC female from the stock part effect the floe rate as the back pressure will be less than what it is stock.

If this presents a problem then how did you folks plumb it
