If I understand correctly, IPC allows longer trap arm lengths than UPC. I think UPC had a limit of 36? Someone correct me if I'm wrong. IPC has a chart based on the pipe diameter. I believe 2 pipe can run 5' or 6' before it vents. The general rule is that the drop can't be more than 1 pipe diameter (or else the water completely blocks the pipe and prevents venting).
Apologies, thought I added that. I live in Upstate New York, so IPC.
What code are you using? Different strokes for different folks?
