Verify the oil pressure using a known good manual gauge. Is this build running a HV and/or HP oil pump? In an extreme case, perhaps excessive oil pressure to hydraulic tappets is floating the valves...

Is the cam a custom grind (is it ground 'straight up' or with a built-in advance?)? Are the cam/crank gears adjustable? Was the cam degreed during the build to verify its position? Was valve installed height, coil bind, general valve train geometry verified?

A cold/warm compression test may provide some information. Disable fuel and spark, then test with the throttle wide open.

Testing crankcase pressure may shed some light here as well.
Where was Bunkie when we needed him?
