Not really. I suggest you get some of those ridiculous Flowmasters in 3 inch or bigger and use turndowns.

Dynomax bullets will get the job done. They are little 16" glasspacks. Completely wide open and they bark really nice. I have them on a mopar 318.
On my motor I plan on flowtech warlocks which have a cutout built in.
Other than that the only other option is cutouts. Those electric ones are super nice.

I have duel 3 chamber Flowmaster's on my truck. I don't really care much for Flowmasters but they were on the truck when I bought it. They are 2.25 or 2.5 in and out.

I cut the pipes off after the mufflers (so they wouldn't get hung up on anything when off roading) and it is a lot louder. I have to crank the stereo just to hear it when crusing down the road.

I made some down 45* and out 45* turn downs to quiet it down a little (my exhaust is 2 ft. + from the ground).

I made an X pipe setup with 3" Moroso Spiral Flow's on my Bird comming out in front of the rears. They're loud. No baffels or packing. I have 3.5" cutouts for when I want to be real loud and let the 502 breath a little better.

That thing has got to be loud as heck right now. Why would you want to make it louder? All you're going to do is attract the sound police quicker.
