Replacing BRZ ECU's with 86 ECU's

Hey guys.
After some pretty wild water damage, I need to replace my electrics. I am aware that you pretty much have to replace everything at once from a donor car, however, my question is, can I replace my ecu's, dash etc from a 2013 BRZ to that of a 2013 GT86? are there any differences when it comes to these setups?
Thanks

If car is key start dash is part of security set, if its push button its not




but its likely easier jist to replace everything from donor car that same as yours key start or push start as there is a bunch of different electronics in the push start to key start
