Default check engine light

Hey guys im new here but have owned my saab for a couple months. It is an awesome car but i have run into some problems!!! Check engine light, scanned and i have a p0033 code. From what i have researched it could be a charge bypass valve. Which i also researched and on my model.... 2003 saab 9-3 linear, that bypass valve is built into the compressor housing. Looks like it was a bad idea to me, never the less its rathe expensive new so any one who has one or knows where i can get one cheap or used let me know! Other problem i found was it could be a wastegate control something or another??? And saab pros please feel free to chime in with any and all experience. The car makes no boost and has lost all its power. Pretty lame to drive now..... I know i will get some guff from some members probably saying use the search feature, I have and now i need some parts and experience!

THANKS, for any and all help. I really appreciate it!!!

Can you take a look at the wastegate actulator and see if that might have become detached?
