If the sound you hear sounds like a "swoosh", then all's that is is the sound of the compressed air topping out as you change gears. I have a centrifugal supercharger on my Mustang and it is almost identical to a turbo, the only difference being a turbo spins its compressor wheel with exhaust gas and a supercharger uses the serpentine belt to spin the compressor wheel. You will also get a whine when accelerating from either one these power adders as the compressor wheel rpm's pick up. Want to do something fun? Go to a turbo/supercharger rpm calculator online and see how fast it's compressor wheel spins. The answer might shock you. I hope this helps.
