I have never seen Pentair claiming 160 GPM for either IntelliFlo, or 130 GPM for that matter. Their pump curves go out to around 147 GPM under ideal conditions. In any given install you are unlikely to reach that ideal flow rate. 130 GPM is a more realistic guess at what can be reliably and efficiently achieved in real world situations.
