Turbochargers are powered by engine exhaust gasses. The exhaust gas is channelled onto the turbine wheel, which is connected to the compressor via a shaft running through the turbo's centre section. As the compressor accelerates, a very pronounced induction sound is produced, which is also accompanied by a high-pitched whine. Due to the cost and complexity of a powerful turbo set-up, some racers have chosen to simply replicate the sound produced in an effort to strike fear into the hearts of challengers.
