Ill bite.

there are dozens and dozens of threads on the sprint / BMS debate and how they compare ....

Ill give you the cliff note version.

AA tune is a tune!!! and is reported to do great things overall, BUT you have a DME that has been modified, and you may encounter warranty issues if you go in for service etc etc etc

on the other hand, BMS is a piggy back, undetectable ( once removed) ... it offers throttle pedal re-map and some slight timing and fueling changes at the top end ( in my experience) I have the BMS and am very very happy for what it cost and what it does... and i track my car.

The sprint booster only does throttle remap..

for the money the BMS cant be beat.....but if you are into real racing etc etc etc or dont care about warranty the AA tune is the way to go.

No,
the AA tune by itself already changes the throttling, so there is no need for a sprint booster.

the BMS by itself changes the throttling and has different throttle settings. the BMS is basically a sprint booster with some engine timing to increase performance.

The AA tune is a full tune of the entire engine ecu, so gives you power across all the bands and such. Hence why the AA tune is like 500 dollars.

The BMS is a piggyback that tricks the Ecu into thinking it needs more fuel to give more power or something like that(but not effective and less then an AA tune), and it also has throttle remapping percenteges in different "maps" which is what a sprint booster does. This cost like 250

There is no need to combine them
