For Unlocked Bootloader Devices - Flash at your own risk. Make sure to take a complete internal memory backup before flashing.

EDIT 1
Procedure that worked for me

So I've managed to install it and as expected, I had to format and delete everything on my internal memory. Here is the procedure I've followed and I'm 100% sure it'll work for others too.

Stuff I did before flashing:
1. Took a complete backup of internal memory.
2. Downloaded ROM + Recovery ( I use Holy Dragon custom twrp) + magisk 18.1 zip to an external OTG drive

My Configuration before flashing:
OOS 5.0.8, Unlocked BL, Magisk and root, Custom Kernel, Custom HolyDragon recovery

Procedure I followed:
1. Boot to recovery.
2. Wipe System, Dalvik, Cache
3. "Format Internal Memory". Please note, I formatted internal memory, not just wiped. This will remove encryption for once which will help the rom boot. It won't boot on encrypted partition with unlocked bootloader on first start up.
4. Flashed ROM zip.
5. Flashed twrp image.
6. Pressed power button for as long as possible until it rebooted again.
7. Pressed volume button before it could reboot so that i can select recovery. This step is important. If you won't do it, your recovery will be replaced with stock one.
8. Flash magisk zip. 18.1
9. Reboot system. It will take 10-15 minutes as it will reencrpt the storage.
10. Profit! Enjoy your new official oos pie on OP3/T.

Some things to note:
1. On first boot, it WILL NEED either mobile data or wifi. It downloaded some update and then installed and proceeded.
2. It will ask for your previous pattern. It didn't work for me so i simply login with my previous Gmail account on 5.0.8 and login successfully.
3. You will need to install magisk manager on first boot. It will show magisk not installed. Don't panic. Simply reboot your device once and it will appear in magisk on second reboot.

I am currently at work. I will flash it once I am home. but make sure you take complete backup of your internal memory. It will mess up your internal data partition if you have unlocked bootloader. Don't take an unnecessary risk with your data.

That makes sense as you already had the closed pie build. Also, one question, are you both currently encrypted?

On the 3T build I can't get it to install magisk for God's sake. The system partition is full and it seems it installs magisk fine, but when I boot up it says it isn't installed.... Tried different versions from 17.2 to 19
