Default Rossi .91 DF engine

I have a Rossi .91 ducted fan engine laying around with nothing to do that came out of a F-80 that went to heaven. The engine has rear exhaust. I'd like to install it in a ARF plane but not sure of what I'm getting in to. Problems like accommodating for the rear exhaust (and tuned pipe), very high RPM's etc. are only a couple things I'm aware of. But the engine is like new and if I could get it set up in a plane think it could really smoke.

Most likely it would work in a fast plane. Not sure if there is an ARF that fits unmodified.
Here's a few threads that might give you ideas:

Flyer95 has posted a nice pic of his plane using a Rossi 105 DF engine:
