Tilt the Santee at a 45 degree angle towards the wall, then use a 45 el to make it hoizontal then take it to the wall.

Ouch! That means I am going to have to drill lower on the joist, so that I can have clearance from the top of the joist. I was trying to keep the pipe at its height, going up as it reaches the tub drain, this way the water flows freely to the stack.

No you won't, turn the tee other direction, now tilt side of tee at a 45, add a st 45 el into the side of the tee and run it to the wall, keep drain where it's at.

I am very high on the floor Ron because the drain stack is very high. They had ran lead pipes bang down on the floor, and I don't know how the water drained before. I didn't get a chance to use the tub, I guttered the entire house. If you look at the stack, the 2inc pipe is coming out very high, thats why I had a problem with the toilet drain, nothing worked, but the 4 to 3, to 4 method you advise me off. Thanks

Ok then do this just turn the tee around, and go with it, you have no other options unless your ready to rebuild the stack, the vent for the tub will work like that, questiom is, will you get trap to work?

Ron, if you look at the picture, you will see that they notched the top of the joist because the pipe was so high up.

Should be a Long Turn, but if there was no room for it, Short Turn will work.

So turn tee around and you ready to glue it up.
