Which TFS head do you have? I have a set of Darts and a set of TWR heads and their patterns are not the same. I only ask because I hate to lead you to the wrong adapters. TEA used to sell adapters to run a standard SBF header on a TWR head and actually I think TFS even sold adapters for it as well.

What Dart head is 3" inline? I just measured my Dart Sr heads and the outer pattern is bigger than 3" I just measured my TWR TFS heads and they are right at 3" using a tape measure so not 100%

I mentioned TEA already, they sell the one for the 3" to normal. I think you are wrong using the Dart term because as I pointed out I measured my Darts and my TFS TWR heads and my Darts are bigger than 3". TFS I believe even sells adapters for their heads to work with standard heads as well. You do realize once you put in adapters you throw off your turbo kit some and might run into fitment issues with things like the crossover tube.

I have the HP kit on my '89 5.0, and yes it may cause fitment issues. I would not worry about the cross over, however the header on the pass side may hit the inner fender.

I don't remember exactly how they look, but could you not weld shut the holes in the header flange and have them drilled for the proper bolt pattern?

If you did that I do not think the tubes of on the flanges would line up well with the ports on the heads.
