Interesting concept. If you can power a blower with exhaust gasses why not with electicity. How ever looking at the ebay gadget it looks like a leaf blower. I doubt if it could generate any noticeable boost. Takes quite a bit of power to pressurize the intake system. Look at the size of a genuine belt driven blower compared to this one.

Those have been proven to impede boost, not build any.
