cant get the ac working after engine install

Well I'm trying to get my ac going again after adding a new engine.
I flushed the lines. added new oil, o-rings, seals, and an in-line filter.
I started adding refrigerant after evacuating the system, and the pressures were all over the place. too high, too low...... One minute the low side is 20 psi while the high jumps to almost 400. Then i'll turn it off, restart and the pressure is closer to normal. resting pressure is too low one minute and too high the next. Last check, which seems somewhat stable

low side at @50
High side at @ 150
resting pressure @ 125

Bad Compressor??

I am no ac pro...
