So my question is were these new rings fitted professionally?
The bores need to have the glazed surface broken by honing stones otherwise you would get high oil consumption.

Answered your other post before reading this with more info .Better to confine to one post .Were the valve stems checked for wear and oil seals replaced ? Normally you would get signs with blue smoke .With that work done , getting timing rechecked wont go wrong .As already stated , bores need honed prior to fitting pistons .
