    especially after i bleep the throttle.

    Its really not drifting that much. It moved once and then stayed within 1psi, thats nothing. Is this on a cold start, warm start, immediately after driving?

    Vacuum and boost will behave much different if you are under load, which revving in neutral, doesn't do. So it's not really much of an indication of anything at all.

    I understand that, I wanted to know if this is normal behavior at idle or is this an indication of a vacuum leak or something else.

    Just watched the vid, didn't get a chance to at first. That seems very normal to me.

    On cold start (Ridgewood NJ?), especially in colder weather, if you ever notice that the RPMs are near 1500? Then if you quick blip the throttle,they will drop down til about 1400 until it begins to warm up...you're probably seeing the vacuum associated with how that works (from what I read before, it's done by design).
