I'm pretty sure most of the turbo back kits come with an upgraded DP. Some are 3.5" and some are 4" although I don't know of many running a 4" DP. You just have to read what the kit you're interested in says.

I know I've been looking at running a dual stack set up so that's also what I look for in a kit.

Like I said, it just depends on the kit. If it's a turbo back kit, it'll come with one, you just have to look at the description of the kit. If it's a cat back kit, that's when you'd have to consider upgrading or keeping your stock dp.

If its a 4" kit, its debatable to just buy a bigger dp. If you're looking at a 5" kit, then you prob want to, because you'd have the stock 3" dp opening into 5" pipe.

These are all just my personal thoughts and opinions though, I'm sure someone with some more knowledge on the subject will chime in also.

From stock to a 4" DP you should see a pretty considerable drop in EGTs since there will be quite a bit of less restriction after the turbo, it also should spool a little quicker. I am thinking that when I do my injectors, I might take off the exhaust manifolds and port match, ceramic coat them, and a good cleaning of course, to spool the turbo quicker also. Just some food for thought.
