Default Any one know anything about VW Corrado?

My wife likes the look of them, and I kind of like their body styling too.
She always wanted one but doesn't like the type of people that usaully drive them. I told her if it was possible to shoe horn in a 3800 for an engine (and if I can't talk her into a Fiero) it MIGHT be a project car I would consider in a few years.
I don't know how hard that would be since I've never actually seen the engine bay of one of those cars.
Anyone ever have a Corrado? Did you like it?

The Corrado is the same base platform as my Jetta. My sig pic should give you a good idea of the engine bay size.

Their handling is good and can be made very good with ease.
If you are interested I can point you to resources to push over 400Hp from the VR6.
