It's probably the S13, or at least one of them since the front and rear parts are completely interchangeable.

RP is not used in the chassis code. Just like how nobody uses BN in BNR34. Its just known as a R34. With two variants. The s13 and the s13 silvia. There were too many variations in the s13 chassis so its really broken down into two and within those two it could be broken down even more. Its the original posters fault as there really is no Zenki(sohc) and Kouki(dohc) s13 models.(only engine differences and a slight change in the front bumper)

Its; S13(240sx/200sx/180sx w/ flip ups) or s13 silvia(with solid lights)

So I guess when people make a thread they should know what they are talking about...

But your RPS13 is just a a s13 hatchback with a sr20 motor.

This is not neccisarly true. The "RP" part of the chassis code does stand for something. The "R" stands for fastback in "RPS13" where the "P" stands for engine type, sr20det in this case. "Zenki" and "Kouki" have slightly different chassis codes, RHS13 for a fastback, SOHC, "zenki", and RMS13 for a DOHC FB, "Kouki".

As far as names go an s13 could be a 240sx, Silvia, 180sx, and I suppose maybe a Sil-80. 200sx was used for the S15 and S12. Zenki and chouki is really just slang, easier than remembering chassis codes.

Everything that you said is just a restatement of what i said. I stated there are subgroups that could be broken down even further but its not about that.

The zenki and chouki S13 isnt really a group as they share similar engines and body style the only difference was a front bumper that is nearly identical to the later. A more correct grouping would be a the240sx/200sx/180sx(200sx was used in europe) and a silvia. Why do you think people make Sil-80's cause its a mix of a silvia 13 and a normal 180 s13. Thats why there is two distinctive groups.

Silvia:(Fixed headlights)
CA18
SR20

240sx/200sx/180sx"(Flip-up headlights)
CA18
KA24
SR20


Hmm..for a zenki and chouki its like..Hmmm'??? Which one do I like?? They are both exactly the same but one has two slits in the bumper and nothing else is different. But I guess a different bumper is enough to give it its own subgroup.. . I find the silvia more suited to have its own as its has a completly different front end(not just the bumper) as the s14's kouki has a completely different front end compared to its predicessor the s14 zenki.

Yeah, it wasn't totally clear. I stand corrected on the 200sx, with the sil-80 I was talking about the 500ish made by Kids Heart under nissan, those cars had to have chassis codes I would think. Personally I think zenki's and choukis could be considered two different groups, especially when it's "which one you like better", though I think the 180sx and silvia need to be included in this pole.
