Dumb question on EGT sensor location

With my new turbo and injectors I've been watching the EGTs a lot. I even searched some old threads and read about EGT "before" or "after" turbo. Where would the before turbo location be? Where would the "after"? My EGT prob is tap'd right into the driv side exhaust manifold. Is that the right location to be referencing the standard numbers of 1250ish being max sustained ect? Thx, probably dumb questioned just never thought to ask

I guess what I'm askin is my sensor in the exhaust manifold considered "before" or "after" turbo? And do the temps go up or down after going thru turbo? Up I imagine,

Where Does the reading come from with guys using monitors? Or do you have to tap your own sensor? I don't know cause I have autometers and have mounted all the associated sensors

Mine is tapped in the same spot as yours, drivers side exhaust manifold (pre-turbo).
The exhaust gases will be cooler post-turbo.
