I just want to confirm that I am not going overkill with water flow using an Eheim 2215 for a 33 gal long.

Filtration is awesome doing 164gal/hr = filtering the tank complete 4.96 times/hr

Won't be too much but you may have to adjust the outflow direction or use a spray bar unless you want a lot of current.

I will be using the spray bar that it comes with, well, it better come with it, that is how I am reading it on Bigalsonline. It will be a shocker if I would have to order yet more parts to get this thing off the ground.

The 2215 should come with a spray bar (most do, nowadays).

If you plan to heavily plant your aquarium, I would say that an Eheim 2215 would be insufficient in terms of filtering for the aquarium.
