Do I have forged internals? Do I have a Uni-Body frame and do they make subframe connectors for our cars. Thanks guys I know these are NooB questions, but I am a NooB. Thanks again :D

No, on the forged internals.
Body is unitized w/ hydroformed front sub-frame.
Not sure on the sub-frame connectors.

any other good places for wheel/tire combo purchasing?

from a video we have of the STI- it has forged high carbon steel connecting rods, lightweight cast aluminum alloy pistons, hollow tubular steel camshafts vs. cast iron(most competitor applications), 4 valves per cylinder, lightweight shimless lifters, reinforced crankshaft journals, semi closed deck, sodium filled exhaust valves (dissipates heat away from valves and firing chamber for less risk of valve warping), ACVS (variable valve timing), TGV (tumble generator valves- better air/fuel mixture), ETC (electronic throttle control means computer controlled throttle ie. no throttle cable), Iridium spark plugs (lower energy required to fire, and increased lean air/fuel mixture firing ability) metal matrix composite for additional crankshaft support.

The crank is also forged high carbon steel.
