I don't see the video, but it could be the fuel regulator in the TBI. Should hook up a fuel pressure gauge in line just before the TBI and check the fuel pressure. It should be 9 to 13 lbs. Rev the engine up to see if it holds the fuel pressure within range. If it don't, then the regulator would need to be replaced. Also check for vacuum leaks. Make sure the TBI base gasket is good. I've seen them rot threw.
