Would be simple enough to run flexible ducting up under the floor and pipe it into the fresh air intake from say... Under your seat in the battery box for example.. Then it's just a matter of blocking off the fender intake and voila..one interior air recirculating system.., you could just partially open the fresh air Intake grate and then you get a small amount of fresh air with your recirculating air.. Easy enough to have it installed in winter and removed during non cold months..!!
And I have seen a modification which uses a larger fan and is supposed to provide a lot more air flow..it uses an a/c delco blower motor and cage from memory.. Common upgrade in England..

That sounds like it would work nicely...hell you could put in a Y pipe as it goes into the blower that has a damper in it so you can mix as much fresh / recirculated air as required..wow...spending way to much time with my HVAC contractor..

I'm sure they are nice but a complete much larger replacement heater is substantially cheaper.

The one I used is a tight fit and puts out more heat than needed in the 90. The Summit Racing one would be a lot less work and be fine for a 90. For a 110, mine would be great, but I would suggest you need to do more ducting work to push some air into the back seats.

You would get a bit more out of mine with a larger bulkhead hole, I think, but I wanted to be able to put the stock heater back, if desired. I really need to measure the output of it now that I have the vents opened up and the intake on it. Maybe in a bit, once winter lets off. I'm guessing I'm up around 9 kW (31000 btu-h) as it sits.

Keep in mind, this is all for a LHD. A RHD provides a lot more restrictions in space for the heater and the bulkhead hole size.
