Moving a cast Iron pipe


Just when I thought I had a productive weekend towards completeing my kitchen remodel I hit a problem, after hooking up my garbage disposal, then the elbow that comes with it, then the Tee for the 2nd bowl, and then the Pee trap, I sit below my wall DWV outlet. My house has cast iron DWV pipes, and was wondering what I could use to lower the outlet i.e. what type of tools, to cut, and if I could install PVC or if I have to keep using cat iron. My walls a completely finished on the kitchen side, but I could removed the sheetrock from the garage side and do my thing.

instead of the elbow coming out of the disposer can you run a tailpiece to raise the trap

Thanks for the feedback. I ended up installing a Pee trap on each run and then doing a Yee at the wall inlet,avoiding the Tee on the disposal side kept me at the same level as the wall inlet.
