In any case, water pump failure is not supposed to lead to problems like this. Do the compression test. Ignore the vcg for now. Post your results here and we'll take it from there. I might have a good solution for you as well.
I had a little bit of smoke with no smell of coolant with the old pump. With the new pump it is a lot of smoke and strong smell of coolant now... I'm guessing because the impeller is actually working now that more coolant is flowing. I'm sure it's one of the gaskets I just don't know which one.
