To get more heat out of the stove, side jackets would help a lot, make sure you furnance heater is not too powerful, it may cool down too much with the air flow. Not sure if it is adjustable or not?

6" may be a bit small, if you can fit 8" might be better, you can alway adapt down easily.

Look in the "Best of" Pitures of Your Stove Thread, many of us have build their own heat jackets or plenums of various forms.
