    As the title says i have been googling trying to find this answer but cant fine anything useful. i have a battery on the way but i would like to see if there was a way to enable full or mostly full performance back to my macbook in the mean time. the cpu is locked at .8ghz and wow is it slow.

    No, there is no way. It is not recommended to run your Mac on the AC adaptor with the battery out (Of course, this only applies to removable batteries).
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions, including tips for maximizing battery performance. If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    As I said, there is no way to do it. It's not recommended to run with the battery out. There is no way to do so without throttling.

    No.

    If the EFI detects the absence of a battery, it will automatically throttle the CPU.

    There is no way to modify the EFI.
