The effective stack size is determined by the smaller remaining stack. So it might be your stack or your opponents. You can also have drastically different SPRs in play in multiway pots. Say pot is $10. You have $100. Opp 1 has $300. Opp 2 has $20. Your SPR with Opp 1 is 10 and is based on your stack. Your SPR with opp 2 is 2 and is based on his stack. You need to care a lot more about opp 1 than you do opp 2!
As for 13 or MORE. TP hands fear the number 13 when it comes to SPR specifically because that is 3 pot sized bets. When expressed as multiples of the preflop size that's 1x on flop, 3x on turn, 9x on river. It's pretty hard to overbet the pot and still get calls by TP hands against most opponents so SPRs over 13 don't really matter much since you're unlikely to get all the money in anyway. SPRs of at least 15 are where you should start looking to set mine.
