The "specs" are somewhat the same, but pipe size and vent requirements are different. My first advise to you is to call a professional to at least make sure you are following code. To address your question, here are some basics. You must use a 2" drain for the shower, and the slope is at least 1/4" per foot, not any less and more is good. Toilets have their own trap built in, so the depth would have to be enough to put a drain line of at least 3" with the slope of 1/4" per foot from the main drain to a closet bend. The flange that goes into the closet bend must set level on top of the finished floor and be 12" from the finished back wall to the center of the flange. There must be at least 16" from the center of the flange to each side and at least 24" to the front. If the toilet drain is more than a 6' from the main drain, it must be vented. The shower must be vented. You're going to have to go through the slab to soil, so after you're through the slab, it's just a matter of removing soil.
