You can get the DP before the exhaust..but you won't notice the full potential with it being stock, plus you will get higher EGTs with stock pipes.

the tuners usually take a exhaust mod into consideration in ther programming. you should do 1.exhaust and 2. air intake then 3.gauges and 4. tuner.

If you have gauges, heck, go for it. you only really need to worry about EGT's when towing, daily driving or racing you dont even need to bother looking at the gauge. Unless you are sustaining the temps for over a minute, it doesnt get the pistons hot enough to do damage.
