Default Where are pre installed games stored?

I have MK7 pre installed on my 3ds from buying it. I wanted to upgrade my sd card but my question is is the game on the sd card or the system itself?

It should be on the SD card. If not, you can easily create a back up or move it over with the new update. Just dump all of your files on your computer, upgrade your SD card, and dump the files on the new one. I have a bunch of downloaded games, (Ambassador) and I upgraded to an 8 gig no problem.

So the answer is yes, they should be stored on your SD card.
