porch header span


Hello,

Currently my porch is 16'lx5'w with 5 4"x4" posts approx. 41/2' apart. It appears to have two 2''x6''x16' sandwiched with plywood as a header. I would like to have only three posts, either 6''x6'' or 4''x4'' wrapped in cedar. What changes, if any, would be needed?

pics would be great. Is there a second floor above the porch roof or just a roof sitting on top of the porch?
