I could, wonder what that will do with the new airbag sensors that adjust based on weight, etc. I know Roush and Recaro both have to recalibrate when changes are made to a seat.
It's not so much weight sensitive airbags at all. We calibrate them to know what a set weight is like (Ie Mustang is 54lbs or something) And then when that weight is reached it turns on the bag. If it's under that weight the bag remains off. Just a simple passenger occupant sensor kinda deal (at least to my knowledge that's how it works).

But yes Ford is very critical of the system so if any tweaks are made generally they want it recaled
