    Is this ok? Problem is I need drain IN joist bay, not above floor level, (I have a toilet just left of tub area, so a finished floor). I would run overflow pipe straight down but do not want to cut any more of the joist out. Will this gurgle at all when used as a shower? As a tub? Suggestion?

    Also, I DID try to turn the tee onto it's 'side', but it is too high and would be above floor. Unfortunately, I cannot spare a thicker wall to get beyond the joist either. Also I do plan to use the same flexible black 90 instead of the PVC

    You could have 45'd away from the tub and had a straight shot into the santee.
    The rubber fitting needs to go. Remember that the top overflow is also how you snake a tub drain. That tight 90 bend is going to be a hard one. And the rubber fitting is differently going to cause problems for snaking and also that they deform over time which is why it's not a legal fitting.
