Yes, there are electric superchargers that actually work, but try an
ebay search for 'electric supercharger' and you'll find a bunch of
scams that hook an electric bilge fan or something up in your intake
and claim it gives you a performance boost.  For every 99 sites on the
internet that advertise an electric supercharger, there's maybe 1 that
sells hardware that might actually boost your car's performance.

The vortex generator things are just a spinny plastic thing in your
intake, and will also do nothing for you except waste your money.

Similarly, while there may be some Brown's Gas injection systems that
produce some efficiency gains, the products you get from the
flaky-looking sources on the internet are more likely to be piles of
junk.
