Re: $500 to spend and can't decide.

My old Beltronics have saved me so many times, it's not even funny. Here in NJ I have seen radar in use maybe once or twice in about 5 years. It depends on where you live. The new ones also have GPS location of speed cameras. Second on my list would be the exhaust since you have the HEMI.

Yup. My Escort has GPS not only for cameras but so that you can lockout known false alarms. It makes driving in the city bearable so that you're not getting constant alerts around malls, etc.

Engine Tune - Depends...I hope you're not talking some garbage chip. A custom "Protune" on a dyno is the only worth while engine tune.

Personally I'd bank that $500 towards your next set of tires.
Radar detectors are not useless in the wide open areas of Texas.

Yes I own a SUV but that doesn't mean it has to sound like a Priuis.

Hemifever tune if that is suitable with you.
