Default spiro locks?

Are there any companies that are making pistons for Subaru's that are using spiro locks? I would like to have a piston that uses spiro locks or double spiro locks.

Actually I just thought about this after writing the above. Can you use spiro locks with any brand piston?

if you are going with custom pistons, im sure you can specify spirolocks. in reality though, standard locks are pretty much failproof and i dont even know how you would install and remove spirolocks on a subi.
