By altering the fuel-air mixture that goes through the plate. In the 1970s some teams such as Hoss Ellington were able to rig devices to their manifolds that could move the plate to increase fuel-air mixture and thus horsepower.

Judging by the difference in restrictor plate size (smaller by 1/16" for Toyota for the Nationwide cars at Daytona this year, IIRC) and the performance seen on the track, I'd guess the Toyota's have about a 15-20 HP advantage over the non-R07 Chevy SB2 Nationwide NASCAR engines. The restrictor plate costs about 10 HP, yet the Toyota's were able to pass SB2 powered cars that use a larger restrictor plate. The Chevy Nationwide R07 is on a par with the Toyota Nationwide NASCAR engine in HP. The Chevy Nationwide R07 uses a restrictor plate the same size as the Nationwide Toyota. Whether this all will hold true with the Sprint Cup cars remains to be seen.

The record for a NASCAR legal car is 212.809 mph set by Bill Elliott in 1987, he set this record during qualifying at Talladega. In 2004, Rusty Wallace tested a NASCAR race car with no restrictor plate at Talladega Super Speedway and it recorded a top speed of 228 mph.
