PCM or IDM problems

Just built a 96 PSD, heads were re-done, cleaned up the positions put new rings on them, honed the cyl walls, left cam an bearings be found no wear, had jim at rosewood fix an upgrade my injectors to lvl 1, put a adrenaline hpop on, engine has maybe 1000mi on the rebuild an I'm having some weird problems, the engine maybe gets to 180-200 if I run it hard but some times oil will boil out of the dipstick tube...? Also I have the crank case breather re-routed to the ground it is blowing out pretty good after it gets warmed up, an finally I am noticing some oil burn but I have heard you can expect some with a fresh rebuild.... Also exhaust is really rich almost burns your eyes if you smell it, has some smoke to it but not alot. I have some ideas but would like some other input, possible messed up IDM Or PCM causing some of these problems? Or maybe the cam is worn out and I was wrong? Maybe the cylinders needed to be bored out more then stock? All the sensors are new Cps, ipr, ICP....

Did you pull the oil cap and check there for blow by? Rule of thumb is if the cap blows off instead of vibrating off you have excessive blow by. You may have taken to much off the cylinder wall to go back with stock pistons/rings without sleeving the cylinders. Theres what you took off plus xxx,xxx miles of wear.

Im assuming the 180-200 is coolant temp?? My oil temp runs 200F on a warm day not sure of coolant but it must be somewhat cooler than that. I know I have a 195F t-stat though.

Yes 180-200 is about my average on coolant temp, also the cap moves of not vibrates, I was told this could be a cam problem as far as the blow by goes, But we didn't have a bore gauge for the cylinder walls so it might have been more worn than I thought.

Sounds like you need to do a compression test and go from there. I'm no mechanic but don't know how a camshaft affects blow by...
