This is a total guess. But I have worked on many a super chargers and the coolant ports don't run the entire length of them. Just at the throttle area. In and out ports. Gaskets and heads are the most likely spots of concern. I can, as you could look at the gaskets and see a bad spot. But head jobs are automatic. Send them out and have them checked for flatness and cracks.
Generally speaking it would depend on your area and the shop. Most shops will not start in the middle of a job, so expect to pay a premium price for the job. The shop does not want to be responsible if the job is a failure, and they would have no way of knowing what has or has not been done previously.
In your worst case your head gasket is blown ( from over heating) I kinda doubt it , depending on how bad it was overheated, (Like driving down the highway at 70mph while your temp needle was pegged to the max for ten miles could be enough to have blown the head gasket. Have that checked by an reputable garage. Your fan relay is probably the reason your fan isn't cooling , I'd check the fuse first then the relay. Your throttle response not being there is usually caused by a bad throttle position sensor (TPS) . The combination of the two symptoms sounds like a blown head gasket from here w\out being there under the hood to check it. I hope it's not, but find a garage you can trust and let them diagnose it, good luck with that..
Have you checked the cam sensor? Also does that vehicle have a "throttle position sensor"? Some cars use both MAP and MAF sensors, not sure about your particular vehicle but if it is one of those, cleaning the MAF wouldn't hurt. Good luck.
Your may be correct about the rings. If, however there is a crack in the head gasket it may be so small that you can't see it. I'd replace thew head gasket and see if that solves the problem, before proceeding with an expensive ring job.
It sounds like a head gasket.Do you overheat? Boil Over? If you do it is the head gasket.It is a big expensive job.There are sealers I have used available only online Seal a Head worked great.There is a test called an Engine sniffer that can positively confirm a bad head gasket.You must confirm.Look for my response on other overheating,Head Gasket issue on this site.Good Luck.
Get engine warm and do a compression test. This easily eliminates head gasket. Head gasket is a biggish job and time wasted if it is not the problem. Part throttle breather unlikely as this is a vacuum applied to the cam cover, so water is unlikely to get in there as the air is coming out of the engine. But, if water is in the inlet manifold, could it be the inlet manifold to head gasket? I can't remember for sure, but I think this is water heated? If so, that is probably your culprit. If not, it sounds like a top end water leak and unlikely to be head gasket, head gasket leaks nearly always show up as steam out of the exhaust - "white smoke". Hope this helps.
Honestly... If you are really not that good at mechanical issues you probably should take it in... Not to be mean but the head needs to come off in a bolt sequence and reinstalled in a bolt sequence with the correct torque... The passenger motor mount,exaust,wire harness,valve cover,head boltscoolant hoses,throttle cable and many more items need to be removed......Also NOTE:... slip and tuck head gasket jobs are NOT advisable and ussually result in doing the job twice over..... The heads have a tendency to warp and also crush in the gaskets over time....The head should be checked for warpage. Also a good time to do the valves and replace seals.......in the end if you are not experienced and do not have someone around that knows aboput the job at hand you may want to have the job done by a tech... For fun grab yourself a Chiltons manual and read through........
