If you didn't hone the cylinders yourself, find out what grit they were honed with. Sounds like might have been too course to seat rings good.
Good points and did the plate hone your block and what type of hone did they use as there are a lot of cheap hones out there that should not be used for performance engine builds.
Are you running a complete PCV system and does the vlave covers have baffles in them?
