Default fired up a new engine. a whole pile of codes

Got a built shortblock, swapped everything from my old engine onto it. Fired it up for the first time today and got a whole pile of codes. It started fine, but had a really unsteady idle, got very rich, and would sputter. Here are the codes.

P0118
P0122
P0508
P0108

I also got all of the tgv codes, but I left the rods and sensors in so I shouldn't get those.

P1094
P1086
P1088
P1096

I triple checked all of the connectors and everything is in place. At first the only codes that showed up were P0508, 0108 and 1086. After a minute or so all of the other codes popped up.

Could this just be a bad ground or something? I really doubt all of those sensors could have gone wrong at once. I am very frustrated because I have spent the last three days swapping this motor in and I don't know where to start looking to fix this. (I am probably just tired and need to look at this again tomorrow morning after I sleep)

Any help is appreciated.

Never mind. Turned out to be a bad ground.

Glad you're able to fix it with your own advice. XD
