    All the ones I know of are turbocharged, maybe in Canada they could possibly be different. I cant tell totally from looking, but looks like the turbo's under a heat shield back there by the exhaust manifold, a blower would be on the front with a pulley on the serpentine belt. Dont see any blower cone with a pulley. Dont sweat it, im glad you have turbo, I prefer turbo's Can mod em to insane psi if you ever wanted to, its more efficent than a supercharger too, and its so small theres probably virtually no lag.

    A supercharger can be either a turbo or a blower. It just a word to describe compressing the air.

    From I can tell from those pics, it is a blower.
