Moving toilet to new location


Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. It looks like there is some great information on here! I am currently remodeling my bathroom and moving the toilet. The existing toilet flange is literally about 10" from the waste stack and vent. However, down at the bottom of the stack naturally is a cleanout at the end of a wye. The waste is currently cast iron. I have two questions I hope someone can help answer.

1) Can I cut the end of the cleanout off ( to make a straight pipe) add a two way wye with a new cleanout and tie the new toilet plumping to that? I just don't think there is enough distance to properly slope into the existing drain.

2) The new flange would have to drop 18" in about 4 feet, should I use 45's and wind down in somewhat of a coil to get it to properly slope?

I'm kind of scratching my head and any help would be appreciated. I need to get it done as I have a child in the way! Thanks!

I guess I should have added a photo! You could see the clean out I would possibly tie i.nto

Why not just move the flange you have?

How are you going to cut the end off. That looks like lead oakum to me.
