Default toilet vent size

I know i can run a toilet closet bend 5ft from a 2'' vent.I need to run the water closet bend 6ft from the 2'' vent to clear some structural beams.My question is,can i run the water closet bend 6ft using the existing 2'' vent or do i have to increase it to a 3'' vent?

I thought the further you went the smaller the vent size should be. Go to 1 1/2 or you may get stoppages.

Just run the existing vent parallel the closet drain for inductive venting. Does not need to be directly connected and 2" is minimum. Ensure you have at least 24" parallel for proper effect. Universal Building Code 7.4.3.3 (a)

No no no... You must increase the velocity of the waste water so it reaches the vent faster. Decrease the horizonal portion of the drain to 2".
