everything you explained is what this motor went through. The first time i attempted to fire her up i had the firing order wayyy wrong. It was running like complete crap and was barely staying running. Then i realized how big of a mistake i made with the firing order and switched everything so it was right.. So during that period it saw LOTS of detonation. It also saw LOTS of idling because i was having many issues with the tuning side of things or so i thought. Was probably the old heads and cam. It also had very low oil pressure that was the main reason for this rebuild not to mention i just wanted to do things right this time. So what would you say was the issue. A combo of all those. Ohh and yes it was only worn on the one half.
