Upgrading to a shower, do I need bigger vent too?


I am upgrading my tub to a shower so I know that I will need a 2" drain. That won't be that big of a deal once I open up my kitchen below. However, the vent pipe runs laterally along a wall that I am not opening up. Do I have to upsize this vent pipe too or can I get away with leaving it as is?

Shower vent can be the same size as a tub vent.
