Espar / Webasto coolant heater

Has any one installed a Espar or Webasto coolant heater in the 6.0 truck? I need to know what the best way to hook it up to the coolant system is. The directions for it are very vague and look to be for a 7.3 I want to hook it up so it circulates threw the heater core and also warms/ defrosts the cab. Any help/pics would be great.

what no one knows anything? Can anyone tell me how the coolant flows threw the engine and heater core and what would be a good place to tap in to?

Would this be the same as the block heater? Or is this a separate water pump with a heater

This would be a separate self contained heater that hooks to the cooling system and can also warm the cab.
