I have played with a PP SMT6. I am not sure about SMT5 but a SMT6 will work for you.

It will work for you, but emanage will work better, and cheaper.

Reading through the spec pages it sounds like it will work. I also agree with the vote for emanage, the tuning is fairly easy to do and there is a wide user group to ask questions etc. I'm actually selling one on the FS board, PM me if your intrested.

Ditto E-Manage. Been boosting 7.5 PSI for 25k miles and about a year point five on my "base map". EGT's are beautiful and it still hangs with stock Corvettes, EVOs, and STis. There's really no practical reason for me to tune it.

you need to tune it yourself. you should def link up with someone that has set one up before. it will save you tons of time and frustration.

check my site under project cars, pick the 93 subaru then mods and click the e-manage link. Page 2 has some tuning tricks. Once you read that, you can AIM me at subachad. I have helped quite a few people through install and tuning of the e-manage. Also, read up on the e-manage yahoo group. Look at a few different tunes under a few different types of cars and that should help you out.
