What flow rate should I expect thru the tub spout?

I haven't purchased this product yet.
My current (inexpensive) tub/shower faucet set was installed a couple of years ago. Flow rate to the tub is terrible. I recently measured it with a bucket and stopwatch to be about 2.5 gpm, which is about what I would expect thru a restricted shower head. It takes about 15 minutes to fill the tub, by which time the water is getting cold. Slow flow thru the shower is okay, but I want a quick fill to the tub.
The literature on this Pfister faucet makes no mention of flow rate thru the tub spout. It would be very nice to know. I don't want to get burned again with a poor performing product.
One American Standard faucet that I looked at included a graph (picture attached) showing flow rate (gpm) versus inlet pressure (psi) for both the shower outlet and the tub outlet. This kind of information is exactly what I would like to see.
