Depends on who you buy from, Innovative sells the X-3 with 3 base custom tunes for $429, the extreme tunes will cost you a little extra. Quicktricks sells the X-3 for $425 with unlimited stock custom tunes, when/if you need tunes for larger injectors/turbo then it cost extra. Gearhead sells the X-3 for $425 then you get a $50 discount for tunes.
If you plan on custom tunes, you'll save money in the long run if you buy a X-3 from a tune writer that is including tunes with the price.
I've never seen anybody selling a SF3 with custom tunes included in the price, so if your gonna get a SF3, you'll be spending money on buying custom tunes.
Once you run custom tunes, you'll never use the canned tunes again.
