What is vented by those two (assumed to be new) 2" vents?

The vent must be sloped at a minimum of 1/4" per foot down from the roof vent to the vertical riser in the house.

Under the IRC you have to increase the entire vent one nominal trade size if the total developed length of the vent exceeds 40'

Under the UPC you have to increase the entire vent one nominal pipe size if the horizontal offset exceeds 3'.
