If your question is, are the standard SVT seats and SVT Recaro seats interchangeable, I'm sure the answer is yes. Whether the SRS components are interchangeable depends on whether the seats are from the same model year, and whether they both have side air bags (I think all SVTs had side airbags). There are two large "master plugs" for each front seat, one from the main harness and one from the seat. Each "master plug" has a number of individual, color coded plugs for each function, ie. yellow for side airbag, red for seat belt buckle, one green and one blue for seat heaters, black (iirc) for height adjustment motor. Each individual, color coded plug will only fit into one corresponding location within the "master plug" It is possible that the pattern of the individual color coded plugs within each "master plug" is different between regular SVT and Recaro, but it makes no sense that Ford would make 2040 sets of special "master plugs" for the 2040 Recaro equipped SVTs out of 9215 made over just two model years. Good luck.
