Sounds like a fuelling, or air leak problem

Check all the hoses.

check the wires on the injector. I had a similar problem a few years ago and it turned out one of the wires had worn through and was arcing and wouldn't run right. I changed the plugs, leads, dizzy cap, rotor arm, I even did the head gasket cos of the way it was running. all that for 1 pissy little wire.
