Where did all that gobbledy come from?
Your problem is likely your not using an scanner/ code reader that plugs into the OBD II port on the left side of the dash under the light switch. You cannot get powertrain DTC codes using the dash diagnostic test, if that's what you're doing; that is for testing the gauge functions and inputs and some PATS/ignition functions only. (It's even called the HEC test mode as in "Hybrid Electronic Cluster" test mode.)
A proper DTC code has four digits after a letter. P103 is meaningless. If it was a proper DTC code it would be "P0103" and your CEL light would be illuminated. I'd buy/borrow a code reader as a first step if your CEL light is on.
What "reoccurring problems" are you trying to fix?

correct i am not using a scanner although some of those p codes did pop up using one (autozone) under different conditions.

also correct that i do not have a cel light which is probably the most frustrating part about this.

i have been trying to find/borrow a code reader in particular the one turbofocus1 advertises for but alas no luck thus far.

in short the issue im dealing with is after a short time of driving and things warm up, when i go to WOT, say on the freeway my car will not downshift properly and the engine seems to bog down as if its missing or recieving too much air and not enough fuel.

The second character is for SAE/MFG designation
P0400 - Since certain components that control the EGR valve are mounted to the firewall and not likely changed with your engine swap, are probably your issue. The vacuum lines and connections would be a good start.
Remember that some fluids will eat holes in certain hoses.
P0200 - Injector Control Circuit Voltage ?
P0103 - misfire may be casused by either of the two (though more likely the Injector Control Circuit issue.

P0301 is misfire on cyl 1 my fellow bullet dodging Memphian.

DTC codes with Detailed Descriptions
I highly recommend using those descriptions for these cars over the generic descriptions that come with scanners. Please note that the possible causes are not separated from the test description- the first cause is in the same paragraph as the test description.

P0103 - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit High Input The MAF sensor circuit is monitored by the PCM for high air flow (or voltage) input through the comprehensive component monitor (CCM). If during key ON engine OFF or key ON engine running the air flow (or voltage) changes above a maximum calibrated limit, the test fails.
Possible causes:
MAF sensor screen is blocked
MAF circuit shorted to VPWR
Damaged MAF sensor
Damaged PCM
A MAF V PID (MAF PID) reading less than 4.6 volts (Refer to equivalent grams/second chart in GO to Pinpoint Test DC ) in continuous memory or key ON and engine running indicates a hard fault.

Wtf is all that..

if you get access to a good scan tool, have a friend drive with you and have them watch the maximum g/s value for the MAF (mass air flow) PID at acceration from a stop into second gear. I almost suspect you'll notice an unusually low value.

Memphian? Not Memphisian, or maybe Memphibian?

i have inspected all vacuum lines thoroughly andswaped al vacuum related parts from both cars in andout. what would be the chances of 2 differwnt engines having the same syptoms and the same faulty part,.very low I would assume.
