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.

Cut outs allow you to run a stock exhaust and when you want to drag race you open the cut outs.you can either buy the manual style which would require you to mount a cable like that used on a lawn mower throttle, or you can get high tech and get the solenoid operated kind, they run on battery voltage and open and close with the flip of a switch. What ever you do take your time ask questions and do it safely and if you think something MIGHT be unsafe rest assured it is. Try jc whitney
