new toilet flange suggestion

I am going to be installing a new flange and piping to the main stack, and was wondering would there be any advantage to using a 4"x3" 90deg reducing bend so that i can use a 4" flange?

i was thinking about doing everything in 3" because the connection at the main stack is a 3". so it would basically be a 3" flange, with a 3" 90deg elbow, and a 3" pipe to the main stack. but I was wondering if that will create a restriction. theoreticallly it should because the toilet outlet is only 2". though i have no experience in plumbing so I have not a clue

lastly would you suggest I stick with a good ol' wax ring gasket, or get one of those fernco rubber sealing adaptor/gasket thing.

Personal opinion: I would use a 3" flange and fittings. I would also use the old style wax seal. Some members here have had problems with the rubber seals. May have just been the way they installed them. Good luck.
