Default Supertech piston question

Do the supertech pistons have a provision for the piston squirters or will the squirters need to be removed and passages blocked?

I would sure hope they do, otherwise they don't know how to design pistons. Why not go with JE or Wiseco?

I seem to recall hearing about one of the pistons out there not working with the squirters, just wanted to double check. This was a while back and I might have been mistaken.

Why not JE or Wiseco? Cost would be the largest factor...well pretty much the only factor. I know going cheap on engine internals isn't the wisest decision, but the Subaru guys seem happy with them so I figure I'd give them a shot. I'm sure they are better than stock BP pistons.
