Looking for advice on these waste pipes


I'm renovating the bathroom and need some advice on reconfiguring the waste pipes at the point in the picture.

The simplest solution I can see is cutting off the trap and capping the shower waste pipe, then tying the new toilet into the 3" pipe. Despite lacking elegance, is this an acceptable option?

If I did decide to cut this section out and redo it, what would be the best way? Do I still need the old shower vent or will the vent at the beginning of the run suffice?

Re: Looking for advice on these waste pipes


Need to know what state and city you reside in so we know what code applies.

But what you have leaves me wondering how you plan to vent the shower without using a dry below the floor flat vent that does not meet IPC code.
