Could be a restricted/plugged fuel filter.

I would say some restriction in fuel flow either filter, injectors, or fuel pump.

I agree on the fuel flow issue. The reason I stated fuel filter is because it's the cheapest to replace, and part of regular maintenance. A good place to start from.

And I agree, start with the least expensive repair first.

Make sure the EGR is operational and not half on the toilet seat!
