I would turn the 90 so it's diagonal instead of straight up. See if that helps.

I will. I was also looking at gluing gutter gaurd to the 90 degree elbow instead of using the strainer. Do you think that would help?

I have always kept my 90's on a diagonal, so this is the only problem I see. I don't know about gutter guard, but it seems to me that if the strainer is the problem, more holes under water is the answer.

I ordered a wider strainer and I'm going to turn the elbow at a diagonal hopefully this will help. If it doesn't work I'll have to screw it straight into the bulkhead which will put the water level about an inch below the trim which would kinda suck.

I tried the elbow at an angle with the strainer and without with a maxijet 1200. It overflowed still but the maxijet 900 is working now. I think it has a lot to do with how close the sump is to the display in height. The 160 gph that the maxijet 900 is pushing seems to be doing a lot better though.
