this 1200 has what look like RX7 4-pots on the front, and it runs 13's

Yes. The key is to use a smaller disc rotor than the RX7 rotor. RX7 4-pots normally use 276 mm discs, same diameter as the Verada/Diamante discs all of which normally take 15" rims.

The question is what discs to use?

If you were to put say Stanza/Sunny 245 mm discs on, it could fit under some 13" wheels. To fit the Stanza discs is fairly easy, however, they are only 10 mm thick, while the 4-pots are designed for 22 mm discs.

would the S13 250mm disc work? I'm not sure of the thickness of them..?

Quite interested in this as I am looking at upgrading my front brakes on my sedan

Might do. The RX7 4-potter is probably no taller than the S13 caliper.

S13 250 mm rotor is 18 mm, but you could use shims behind the brake pads to take it out to 22 mm. Like maybe an extra pad backing plate.

The 251 mm x 20mm S13 disc might be a better choice, it was also used JDM R32
