SGSA has no seperate recovery. The recovery is in the same partition as the kernel. So you can't replace recovery without replacing kernel.
But you can try to install a custom rom from TWRP 2.6.0.0.
If you want to have TWRP 2.7.1.0 install universal kernel flasher, flash slimkats kernel and reboot to recovery.
But then you have to install a rom because your JB system won't start with a KK kernel.
