Ok I know this is asking a lot but here goes. I plan on installing a new shower in my existing 1/2 bath in the basement. The existing bath has a toilet and a sink. When installing a new drain for the shower, where is the best place to tap into for the drain, at the toilet or sink. How do I determine where these pipes travel under the concrete, as far as access for a stright run to tap into. I would like to accomplish this without tearing up half the basement. When venting should I run the vent from the shower stall to the existing vent or build a new one from the tapped in source and tie into the prexisting vent for the sink. Any help appreciated. I am quite handy and have done other plumbing projects before, but nothing drain wise.

Shower drain by most codes, if not all codes, needs to be 2"

Yep you may need to tear up the floor to find or learn where to tie into at.

Check with local codes, they have the final say so.
