if you love the car alot then go ahead with the repairs but at a reputed service centre not local mechanics as engines have tight tolerances and a local mechanic may not do it well which can cause future issues.
i paid 45k for a head gasket and head overhaul for my aveo at the A.S.S an engine overhaul can cost you 75k+

I have been quoted a budget of Rs 11k [+/-] for Piston rings birthday ceremony. I love the car without a doubt, I can always go for an e-cs [clap]

might not be so, because this 11k is just for piston work, if anything more is detected on opening engine, then we will have few additions. I personally feel that I must go for this, alongwith a FIP servicing at Lucas. FE, smoothness, power is still good.
By the way just had an oil top up. Valvoline SAE 15w40 5 litres at 900/- [:)]

Its not necessary that one needs Piston rings change every 40K kms. Many cars including Indica, Indigo in taxis do more than 2-2.5L kms without engine overhaul. Just change the rings might cost 7-8k INR as the gasket and other things will also be needed to change once the engine head is opened.
