when was the last time you did a tune up? Also you can try a fuel system cleaner. Flashpro can get rid of that rev hang also.

What are you talking about? Is this some notorious 2008 Si problem that everyone is supposed to know about without any explanation?

More information or this thread will be deleted. Then you'll have to find other things to post to help you get to the classifieds.

Check engine light on?

Where does it idle at when it's cold?

Have you had any previous problems before this incident?

ETC, ETC.

Did it just start doing this when the weather got cold?

Test the coolant temp sensor for the ECU (not the sensor for the temp gauge, unless there is only one sensor for both devices). It's easy to test, look around and you should find instructions if you don't have a factory manual.
