They basically tell you the size of the housing, area/radius IIRC

Bigger the number the more lag so to speak(but also more topend powa)

smaller number faster spool.

.64 hotsides are good for us, mine has a .60 coldside

Actually after just reading lots of info from the link Ben posted (thanks Ben) the R means Ball bearing. Gt stands for Garrett. http://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbob.../acronyms.html
