Don't know if it is of any help, I do not have an XS550, but used to have one!
It had a 90 Opti on the transom, which was the max it was rated for at the time. I believe that the upper HP limit has now been raised to 115.

I have a 1995 Mariner 30 HP two stroke for the price of a Mariner 200 XL. 15k. Sounds too good to be true? Not a bit of it. Genuine price for the astute outboard buyer.
