Never seen a CHT gauge on a car. That's more of an aircraft thing for aircooled engines. Since the 300 is water cooled a water temperature gauge would be more informative. They fit in the cylinder head behind the thermostat housing and the thread is 1/8" NPT.

These motors run cool as a cucumber when the IP is tuned at or near stock settings. I wouldn't worry about CHT. Accurate coolant temp (think VDO gauge) and EGT probe are enough to keep an eye on the temperature.
