LQ9 block strength

I have have a great deal on a LS1, but after reading it seems that the LQ9/ LQ4 iron blocks are a lot stronger then the aluminum LS1/LS2 versions. My Gen 1 block held up so far with the abuse. I would rather try this then to hold onto the old school small block forever.. Right now I plan to use the block and crank and use forged rods and pistons with L92 heads..
