Difference in SCT SF3 and X3?

I have searched and was wondering what the difference was between these two programmers?
Thanks

The SF3 has 3 preprogrammed tunes, and the X3 is blank waiting on custom tune from your choice of vendor. The SF3 is what I have and can recieve 3 custom tunes as well.
However I recently read a post from DJ's that SCT had changed something, I believe on the X3.

What model SF3 do you have? Mine is a 3015 and was wondering if it could take custom tunes? I thought I saw where the latest SF3 could no longer take custom tunes. Either way I need some custom tunes!

Mine is 3015, you may be correct on the SF3. I may have my models backwards, look up threads by mobenz and you will find her post about which model they changed.

Per SCT,
The old X3 had 3 preprogrammed tunes and could accept 3 custom tunes.
The new X3 is blank waiting for custom tunes.
The SF3 has 3 preprogrammed tunes and can still accept 3 custom tunes.

Hi,

That is correct. SCT recently changed the X3 and made it like the Xcal2, where there are two models. The P/N 3000 - X3 is the custom tuner and the P/N 3015 - SF is the preprogrammed tuner.

The X3 will hold 3 custom tunes.
The SF wil hold 3 preprogrammed tunes. I'm thinking the SF can be converted to a custom tuner only, like the old 9415 (Xcal2 SF) but I would need to confirm that information with SCT.

Thanks,
Vivian
