Their usually installed under the drivers side dash, in front of the subwoofer. Which is kind of a PITA to get to if you ever have to do any work on it.

I installed a big 5 vent heater under the passenger side dash of my MC a few years ago. No issues doing it this way & was easier to access.

I think when I ever do another one, I won't bother with the standard vents & do all hot tubes whenever possible. They are way more versatile & there never seems to be enough for everyone.

Also, check out some boat blankets to go with the heater. I use them way more than the heater. :rockon:

And last, think about how your going to drain the core when you winterize. Make sure the heater lines are on the bottom side of the core so it drains easily. There is a How-To in the DIY section of this site on how you can install garden hose quick release fittings in the hoses. I installed Prestone Flush Ts in the heater lines down in the bilge compartment. I just pull the caps & the water drains in seconds.
