Sounds like the rings haven't seated yet. Your engine builder should be able to tell you what to do to get them to bed in, or you may try total seal for info.

The solutions to bedding an engine that has glazed the walls are kinda scary. I am not gonna be the one to tell you how, your motor cost too much :0
