I've had mine out in sub zero weather and the heat output is outstanding when the RPM's are up. When idling the temp drops back a bit, but still very good.
The only addition I'd suggest is that the "from engine" hose be attached to the lower port and the return on the upper. This method should work the air out much more effectively.
I like the way Neal put actual holes in the floor versus slots.
The expanding foam is not a bad idea, but with the heat output this thing makes it shouldn't be necessary. I did a lot of extra caulking for seam sealing on mine and really doubt it was necessary.
Here is the one that I did last year:

Premium roof, solid rear glass, tip out windshield, pivoting window doors, rear bumper, Polaris heater/defroster kit
Good to hear it work great , hir in Québec -25 -28 deg.far. this week , should put the heater next week , wait from polaris for the doors
same temp here Pierre (Sudbury)... and the heater works great.
Oneal, could you post some pictures of the finished dash and such, your pictures seem exceptionly clear and bright, and what doors are you running on the 900, and did you get a seal kit with your doors?
Great job. I noticed after I put my heater in that the zip ties Polaris uses to fix the flex tube to vents did not hold the flex tube connection very well. After a rock ride, very bouncy, there was enough banging about that several to the flex connectors had come off of the vent fixture. I spread, using my finger, some silicone adhesive inside the flex tube and on the vent connection and then put the flex back on. Since then I have had no flex come off the vent connector.
