    Unfortunately I think options for the Accord Type-R are pretty much limited to Mongoose and SF
    Just keep hold of their cat and put the OEM system back on, or is that not an option? All I did with my ATR was decat it and it made it very raspy.

    Or maybe ask Alan to weld in another silencer.

    Any recommendations for somewhere around SW London?

    Unfortunately not an option - the original system was mullered by the tea-leafs leaving really only the back boxes which don't fit to the SF pipes/flanges.

    When you say raspy, do you mean a metallic engine-y noise? (I know it's very hard to describe noises with words!).

    I've used powerflow in the past but they're a franchise and only ever as good as the welder/fabricator who's doing the job. Did a great job for me but I've heard horror stories from others.

    Just have a google, read some reviews. I'm from the northwest so I don't know any garages in that area.
    UKDM y0!

    Hard to describe, it was cool at first but then got annoying. I'd be asking Alan to put in another silencer though. It'll probably be the cheapest option.
