first number is the inducer size of the compressor, second is the exducer of the compressor. simple answer is a 60/80 would be a 60mm inlet on an 80mm wheel. on the compressor (cold) side.

sort of, if you look at a turbo compressor wheel it tappers from small to big. small side is towards the inlet, but not the size of the inlet connection, and the bigger end is up against the backing plate. the sizes is the size of the wheel itself, not the housing.
