What do the camshaft and rockers look like?
There is an issue that the oil feed pipe going over the cam can get blocked leading to cam wear.

There is also an issue that the oil pump located in the sump comes loose on its bolts and falls off and also an issue with the gasket on the sump....if it is not fitted properly the oil pump may fail.

Have you replaced the cambelt and idler pulleys?

Just trying to keep you busy
