Car: hopefully a 180 very soon
Ok i know the K means HICAs or something. What does that mean.
Also since when did they call it the RPS13? Is that since the type x?
also the black top and red top sr20dets. i hear there is no diff in them whatsoever..? is this true?

edit- hehe searched it. It means a 4wheel turning system. :)

R means revised,and refers to all SR20 S13's.
P means hatchback.
S is the silvia model.
I'm not sure about the K,but I'm positive it doesn't mean hicas,as there are several hicas-equipped cars out there without that in their chassis code.

you've got your P and R backwards there dude...
one example: the gazelle is a PS12...they don't have an SR20,but are hatchbacks...

nah the R is for hatchback (180SX)

The P isn't for SR20 specifically, but the SR20s are PS13s, if that makes sense.

There was probably a similar model change in the S12s that made them go from S12 to PS12.

A CA18 Silvia is an S13
A CA18 180SX is an RS13
An SR20 Silvia is a PS13
An SR20 180SX is an RPS13

I was told once that stock a black top produces more power than a stock red top(due to the stock ECU), but with similar after market mods, the red top is able to pull bigger power figures

Thats the case for S14/15 VCT engines, which also have a black rocker cover; Later model S13 SR20DETs have a black top, but thats merely cosmetic (no more power)
