Supercharger 924/944?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7962721551&category=46098

They claim an average gain of 10 - 15% in horsepower.
What do you guys have to say?

heres the basics

an electric motor cannot get the turbine (or whatever its called) in the supercharger spinning fast enough to provide any noticable difference in the performance.

The only thing I have seen is a electric fan that spins at 24,000 rpm but it only gave 1-2 psi of boost which isnt worht it at all

Do a Goggle search on "BMW M3 electric supercharger" and you'll get the low-down with tonnes of technical info. Basically there's no way an electric SC can generate enough flow, and variable flow at that to generate consistent boost-pressure in the manifold. If this was such a free-lunch, you'd see the major auto-manufacturers using it as well.
