    I noticed this too, several times while sitting the car while supercharging.

    Almost sounds like somebody slamming a car door or trunk outside nearby. Just a dull "thunk" seemingly "in the distance", but also felt like it came from the front of my car (where no other cars were near).

    Possibly solenoids and valves (routing coolant) going "chunka-chunka" during the charge cycle?
