I doubt you'll find an answer to this since the temp will be dependent on the coolant temp.

In theory, it will be the amount of energy wasted by the engine in heat,minus the enegy lost in the heat exchange from coolant to air, will be the amount available to heat the car.

Of course that number can also be used as an indication of how much energy is wasted per gallon so I don't think it will be published.

It's worse than that... you can't keep a car with a stuck thermostat from overheating by running the heater, although it bypasses the thermostat. It takes more radiator than the heater core.
