Every now and then you'll see this seller named Supernatural Performance on eBay selling electric supercharger kits for about $150 shipped, I emailed a guy who bought a similar item before and he said it does give a little boost in HP. He said only turn it on when your car's running and your check engine light may come on, and if it does you just have to wait for the O2 sensor to adjust itself. I think the HP gain from such a device is probably less than 10HP.
Oh well can't expect much from 150 dollars on a N*.

Re: About those electric superchargers...
The gain in HP is all in his head. Give the keys to someone who doesn't know it's there, have them drive it a bit, turn it on without them knowing and I guarantee they won't notice any change. Now do a WOT microswitch as the only control on a 100 shot and they'd notice...
