without swaping heads or getting head work done your looking at approximatly 400 hp depending on the cam and intake and carb match.
Impossible to answer without knowing the make, model, and year.
A throttle body can be cleaned without removal. Several spray cleaners for throttle bodies are available at your local auto parts.
Turns out the problem was never the throttle, it was an experimental in-line fuse that went out.
Seriously, don't mess with the cam that much unless you only plan to race it. Mild compression increase in the pistons and an RV cam will give you some decent improvement, and an exhaust header will also help.
Advertised Horsepower is: 230 HP @ 3800 RPMs.
Yes, the pistonless rotary Wankel engine.
no *Correction - Reduced back pressure does usually result in more horsepower. Some cars run with resonators rather than mufflers which reduces the noise without as much back pressure, thereby increasing horsepower.
stuck throttle butterfly plate
An engines cubic capacity cannot be converted, mathematically, to horsepower without a host of other information..
a sticking cable at throttle body or a idle air control sensor. check to make sure throttle, is not sticking at throttle plate.
The pistons must be removed from the cylinders to replace the rings. Therefor, you must disconnect the rods from the crank. No options no alternatives period
Not a lot! Without being model specific I would guess somewhere between 70 & 90 horsepower.
It will add horsepower for sure , and you will feel the difference if your a good driver and know your car well . The increase depends on the engine situation and the car model too, on v8's it will usually increase from 5 to 20 hp and you can hit the 20 easily if you reprogrammed your computer , without reprogramming the gains will be from 5-15.
yes when the engine is out and upside down
No. Crank and main bearings can be get at by dropping the oil pan, but to get to the small end rod bearings you've got to get the pistons out.
Yes, but usually only after you have upgraded your pistons. You can get a 50-100 shot without any mods to the engine. Since the 90-96 have twin cams, you will need two foggers assuming you are using a wet kit. They must be installed facing the Throttle body @ 6-12 inches away.

It would depend on what the problem is. All throttle problems can lead to a non running engine.
Horsepower and Brake horsepower are really the same thing as far as mathematical calculation. The difference is how it is measured. Brake horsepower is usually a measure of an engine's horsepower at the shaft WITHOUT anything attached to the engine that would normally be required like the water pump, alternator, power-steering pump, airconditioner, etc. Brake horsepower is usually a theoretical calculation or a measurement made only in a lab under controlled conditions since an engine cannot run without most of the things that it would be required to remove. In the lab/shop they would conect the engine to the dynomometer and then supply coolent, oil pressure, electricity, etc through external means.
Could just be throttle plate sticking--without engine running try to free with a screwdriver Could just be throttle plate sticking--without engine running try to free with a screwdriver
a 305 Chevy makes about 160 horsepower, though if its set up right it can make up to 350 without major modification
Without a doubt, YES!
When the throttle is closed.
