Hello, I had a similar problem and it was the EGR valve opening when it shouldn't. It is not supposed to open when the engine is cold. If it does, the engine will cut out especially when manifold vacuum increases. Disconnect EGR valve temporarily to see if that's the problem and ensure that it is not partially stuck open. They get clogged with carbon and can be removed and cleaned by removing the two bolts holding it to the intake manifold on the right side of the engine.
Try driving is different gears and see if it always does it at 20mph, regardless of the gear you are in. Most likely it does it based upon engine vacuum level. Put your car in a different gear and see if you can make it act up at a different speed than before. This will help you pinpoint the problem. Just post again and let me know what happens.
