A QUESTION ABOUT CARS?
OKAY LAST WEEKEND I WAS IN ALBUQUERQUE NM, FOR A LIL BIT AND WE WERE AT A GAS STATION. THERE WAS THIS TRUCK GOING BACK IN FORTH. IT WAS A REALLY NICE TRUCK. AND EVERYTIME IT TOOK OFF IT SOUNDED LIKE A ROCKET OR SOMETHING. WHAT IS THAT NOISE? IS IT THE MUFFLER OR EXHAUST???

Superchargers make a distinctive high pitched whine. Turbochargers make a very high pitched whistle, but in some states of tune and on full tap they make a blowing sound, similar to white noise almost. If neither of these fit the bill it's just got exhaust mods.

that would be a turbocharger (forced induction intake)
