When accelerating and changing gear, there is a rattle similar to loose silencer baffles, but as this has been replaced reently, could it be the top engine mounting flexing under load, ie the engine torquing on its mountings.

Could be as you suggest , might even be a heat shield rattle or another part of the exhaust not replaced .
