to EDF or pusher prop a LSJS?

Hey all, i am getting ready to build a HL Lynx. after reading the speed thread on this plane i am thinking about going pusher instead of EDF.
i was hoping someone out there could help me out with a question on the motor i have. i have a Littlescreamers Jetscreamer (5100kv) i was wondering if it is possible to run this motor as a pusher with like a 4.75x4.75 or 4x4 on 4S? or is the kv just to high on this motor? i also have a Warp4 3turn that is sitting on my workbench that i thought i might use. which of these two motors do you think will produce a faster plane? i have a 45A esc that i was planning on using as well, so i think my limitation is going to be the motors.

Thanks for any advice or tips you can offer;

I have no real clue what it might draw, but I imagine that Jetscreamer (even though I don't believe it is a high as 5100Kv) might suck 50A+ with a 4.75x4.75 on 4s! I know it is chalk and cheese but with that prop a 28-47-1.5 draws 36A on 3s (and it is only 2900Kv)!!!!

The Warp 4 3T is a far better bet - maybe a 5"-6" prop.
