Default edf su-35 to glow

hi guys, have the su-35 edf jet, the arf version from hobbyking, well first off I took all the servos out and replaced them with metal gear servos from hitec, and went up in torque. pulled out the twin fans,twin escs, took off the thrust vectoring, but retained the exsaust nozzles, gonna keep the servoless retracts in for the time being, will probably upgrade them later, what I want to do is convert it to glow, I've kinda figured out how to install a plywood firewall, and was thinking on using a supertigre 90 glow eng, for the fuel tank I thought about locating it where the lipo would normaly go, but I would have to run probably 10 or so inches of fuel line to reach carb and muffler? still trying to figure out how to get it closer, probably use a standard 8oz tank, don't know if i'll have a fuel draw problem even with muffler pressure, anyone have any ideas, or who has done this with another jet?

Are you going to make it a prop jet with the ST in the nose, pointing out the back or a nitro powered ducted fan?

10" fuel lines will probably require a pump to get a reliable run.

hi twin flyer, yes gonna make it a prop jet with engine in the nose, kinda figured I would have a fuel draw problem with that length, what about a fuel injected glow? what about going with a supertigre 90? in the manual, if you use it as intended, a edf, the all up flying weight is 91.71oz, by removing the fans motors, esc's, thrust vect, I know i'm dropping the weight considerable, I've seen at Richmond r/c they have a su-34 prop jet and it calls for a 90 glow that's why I figured on going with a 90 also, what do you think? oh and thanks for the response, can't forget my manners lol.

corriolan, as I stated it is not a ducted fan glow, nor is it a electric ducted fan, and it's not going to be a pusher, I want to put 90 size glow engine in the nose, just like any other plane, only this is a jet, jeeeez, sorry for getting cranky, but I made it clear what I wanted to do, but anyway thanks for the response, any ideas would be appreciated!!!
