    his car is lighter.

    and without the knock sensor plugged in, you are throwing the ecu into loop mode, and thus killing the performance potential of the car.

    d-series motors do not have a knock sensor. If your throwing a check eng light you need to pull codes to see what the problem is.

    Incorrect. The Y8 had a knock sensor.
    Proof:here

    Anyhow, as pissedoffsol said, your are probobly in limp mode. You need to hook the sensor up.
