Default Quick fit of the turbine

I have a Kingtech K-85 going into a sports jet so thought Id give it a quick fit for size. It fits in fine, the only question is how far forward to put it, noting the fuel tank wants to be at the CoG. The tank in the picture is just a Dubro 3000cc for scale, probably not the ideal shape.

My thought is probably fitting a 100N in the future, and size it for that. Flight weight is alleged to be 7-10kg according to Custom Wings and they recommend a 80 120N turbine. However, the rate of development by the time I get to buy it, it will probably be the same size as my 85N unit!
