okay Ron, so on that low heal tee, will I have to reduce the top to 2inc for the venting? Also on the san tee 2x11/2x2,(shower drain) wouldn't the 1 1/2 be in the middle, I thought the drain would be 2 inc?

1-1/2 is on top of the 2 x 1-1/2 x 2 santee, the side inlet is always last in the name of the fitting. Name goes, Bottom, Top, Side

They make low heals that are already at 2", but you can reduce the tee if you like, set the combo straight up, set tee of lowheal pointed towards the closet flange and the get the vent into the wall.

Ron, I give you all the credit on that one Last but not least, I am basically putting all 3 wye combo facing up? What had me puzzled was the wye combo. I knew what a wye was, but didn't know what a wye combo look like until I google it. I was wondering how the heck was a wye going to work there...Thanks man, your the BEST! I will be able to sleep tonight and get my parts hopefullt tomorrow.

Before I go to sleep, on the toilet drain, do I use an elbow when I'm turning up?

Use a short turn 90 on the turn to the closet flange. Set Flange 13" off the rough back wall, min of 15-1/2" from the side wall.
