Ki Arrow spell + Ammunition (Bow): Arrow(s), Tangleshot ???

Rules Questions

Would adding the Ki Arrow spell to a Tangleshot arrow allow the arrow to do damage?

Ammunition (Bow): Arrow(s), Tangleshot
This arrow is topped with a small bottle containing a small quantity of tanglefoot goo. Elves frequently use these arrows to slow or stop fleeing opponents or to capture animals without killing them.
Benefit: You fire a tangleshot arrow as a ranged touch attack; the arrow deals no damage when it hits, but the target is splashed with the alchemical adhesive. The reduced amount of the glue means this arrow is less effective than an actual tanglefoot bag (DC 10 Reflex save, DC 12 Strength check to break, 10 points of slashing damage to cut through, DC 10 Concentration check).
Drawback: The weight of a tangleshot arrow reduces its range increment to half normal.

Ki Arrow
School conjuration; Level bard 1, sorcerer/wizard 1, witch 1
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components S
Range touch
Target 1 arrow touched
Duration instantaneous
Saving Throw Fortitude (object); Spell Resistance yes (object)
You imbue an arrow with your power and throw it at a target up to 100 feet away. Make a ranged attack roll. If it hits, the target takes damage from the arrow as if you had hit it with a single unarmed strike (including your Strength bonus).

My thoughts are yes, but you don't get the Tangleshot effect.

kk, I can see how ki arrows dmg could replace the tangle effect, but would it still count as a ranged touch attack?

My understanding of Ki arrow is it doesn't make a ranged touch attack, so no.
Ki arrow is entirely incompatible with the effects of the Tangleshot Arrow. To get a ranged touch attack with it you need to fire the arrow which you don't do with Ki Arrow.
