bmw 540i project

I have a bmw 540i with the 4.4 v8. Just had heads rebuilt and just finished putting it together. Well started it today and it'll start but die right away unless I pedal it. Even when I'm pedaling it though it acts like it's running off half the cylinders. No check engine lights or anything while running. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Need more information to properly diagnose this.
Is your fuel pump starting to die maybe? There might not be enough fuel pressure on idle so its stalling out.
