Can I move my toilet and vent?

I have removed walls and will be removing the floor. I would like to move my toilet to the opposite side of the room about 54" from it's original location. It won't be nessesary to cut any floor joist either.

My question is, can I 90 degree the vent pipe to the other wall and then go vertical? Or does the vent have to be verticle from the basement to the roof?

My other question is how many inches do you have to drop your pipe from the toilet to the drain when re locating it, if I cannot move my vent pipe?

You can 90 (use two 45 fittings for a longer sweep bend) the vent over and then go vertical. The horizontal section of pipe will have to have grade upwards at the rate of 1/4"/foot towards the roof vent.

I hope this helps you out.
