h23a bluetop build PLZ HELP!

ok well....very depressing news....i tossed in the h23a bluetop vtec turns on and runs but the oil light is on solid and its not getting any oil to the top! I kept the h23 pickup (which by the way is a different size than the h22a4) kept the h23 pan and still no oil pressure! oil light is still on and i even ran the car for a sec without valve cover and oil does not come up. we kept it obd2 and swapped the oil pump from the h22a4 (which was obviously working fine) The car starts up....revs at around 2500 then drops to 2000 then kind of bogs and dies after about 30 sec or so (doesnt sound to lubricated either....kind of whinny). The whole while oil light is on solid. I dont know what to do at my wits end with this swap. We cant figure out what the heck the issue is! I didn't get a chance to do an oil pressure test but regardless oil is not even coming up at all.....not even a little.
Can it be a sensor or valve or something? anything?
Anyone ever experience this at all?'
I really need help with this issue.....i feel like my head is going to explode im so frustrated......this build has gone wayyy over $ left AND i've been without a car for over 2 months! who knows how much longer
If there's anyone even local (GTA) that can give me a hand or advice it would be a godsend!

Thanks for any help at all!!
