to start with, What have you done servise wise?????

Fuel, and air filters, , the fuel filter behind the banjo bolt on the fuel line going into the injection pump.. these being blocked or dirty will have an effect on power.
mine seems the same sometimes. the odd time it feels like it flys other times it just old birtha. like a said just check everything out.
