Code po551 refers to power steering pressure(PSP) sensor/ switch--range /performance problem===causes --PS system--PSP sensor/switch
Have the power steering pressure checked as it may be a pump problem or just the sensor/switch.. Check the reservoir level as it may be lacking fluid.

Code po551 after 2.7 to 3.2 conversion

I have no experience doing this conversion myself but that code should have nothing to do with the engine itself. The code indicates that you're having a problem with the power steering pressure switch (psps). I suspect that the connector to it got left of or damaged during the engine swap. The psps senses when the steering system is loaded, such as tight parking turns and then tells the computer to increase idle speed so that the engine does not stall. If the wire to the switch is left off or damaged, the code will set. You'll need to inspect the high pressure line coming from the power steering pump. Somewhere between the pump and the steering rack you will see a small oil pressure switch with a couple of wires going to it...or at least it should, the connector might be hanging somewhere near it.

My check eng light is on and i have a tdc which reads po551 please help me.

Code po551 is for the steering sensor. It senses steering pressure and bumps up the idle a little to compensate for lower pressure. The switch number is 5269625 and costs approx 35.00. It is threaded into the back of the steering rack and is accessible from underneath the car. Unplug the electrical connector from the switch, clean with electrical cleaner, remove and replace switch, plug in electrical connector. Disconnect the battery for a few minutes to reset the check engine light. Hope this helps.
