Look at the charts below, I couldn't find a chart for your 053, but the 979 is close:

Once you hit around 5.5 bar the flow rate drops drastically, and the current demand goes way up, indicating the pump is maxed out in efficiency.

Now lets look at the 044

You should be able to run that pump at 6 - 6.5 bar fine, giving a flow rate around 3.3 L/min (1650cc / 30 sec), which is close to the 1500cc / 30 sec given by the factory 930 system.

Also notice the big flow rate drop after 7.5 bar, if you need more than 7.5 bar with a good flow rate, a series pump system like the 930 is the way to go.
