It is in the rear of the fuselage.

The engine is in the back just like Gary says. I assume that you are wondering because of the intake at the front of the nose? I believe that is the air intake for the engine. Someone please correct me if I am wrong but the cone contained the MIG's radar system while air traveled inside the fuselage down to the turbines. Not 100% on that but I believe that is the case.

Basicaly, yes. Although not all Fishbeds had Radars in their nose cones (the one in the picture doesn't). The cone moves to control the amount of air getting into the intake and through to the engine. The air itself moves in two ducts that are located on either side of the cockpit I believe. Many other earlier jet fighters use the same basic configuration, including other MiG designs, the Su-7/9/17/20/22 family, the British Lightning, the French Mystere family (sans the nose cone) etc.

It should have more to do with the speed of the incoming air than the amount. The cone is used to produce a shock to slow the incident airflow. Turbojet engines and supersonic inlet flow do not mix particularly well.

You can see the engine sticking out of the back. The front of the engine extends (approximately) up to the main landing gear doors.
