    At Varin that must be Pranay Engineering Works, one of the most famous automobile engineering workshop this side of Western Mumbai. Specialist in Bosch Pumps. BTW did you get quote for FGT or VGT turbo Punto 90hp/linea or 75hp FGT?

    You can take a quote sooner from FASC for half engine block and turbo too (just in case). Looks like the engine has some serious damage. Leaking pistons and compression issues?

    Get a compression test done if possible.

    EDIT: Since you have white smoke coming from the tail pipe. Please check the Turbo first. Chances are there might be an issue with Turbo which is on its way out.

    @arunkmd Looks like the engine has a major problem. White smoke can be because of blown head gasket. Is the coolant level going down? Do you see oil mixed in coolant? If so then it is probably head gasket. In any case don't wait until engine seizes because that can lead to lot more expensive service since you may have to replace more components in that case.
