    I have a 80cfm in my main level bathroom. I think it's too much.
    I guess depends on the size of your bathroom.

    MUA could push the toxic fumes out into the living area. If you add a MUA unit, put the fresh air out in the hall.

    And put your nuclear digestive waste exhaust far away from any fresh air hoods. Lol

    a courtesy flush and 180 cfm be more than enough for any toxic dump
