2007 Vauxhall Vivaro 2000cdi Engine suddenly cuts out

Hi All.
My Vivaro 2000 cdi keeps cutting out, it has been fine of late with absolutely no starting issues.. maybe a little sluggish but i put that down to its age and mileage 165000.
The other day whilst driving on the motorway she suddenly cutout "Aarrgh"
pulled over and she started straight back up and i continued home.
next day after another 30 miles on the m4 she done it again. and started straight back up i carried on and then it happened again after a couple of miles.
She got progressively worse but i did notice this was happening around 2000rmp or whenever i put my foot down . Eventually i had her carried away to the garage because she wouldn't hold her revs after about 2 seconds and cut out.
After a replaced mass flow meter.. and a new fuel pipe still no luck.
They seem to think its the injectors (because they had a few strange readings ..their words) but with the cost of replacement and the value of the van i am reluctant to get them sorted.
To me it just doesn't feel right!! Im sure its something else .
Help required people!!

Many thanks for taking the time to read this

I learned very early in my motor trade career to never assume anything with cars , customers or garages . As you say , strange it's not billed on invoice or listed as parts replaced . Worth questioning .
