M60 vs M62 commonalities

Can anyone speak to how much interchangeability of parts there is between the M60 (specifically the M60B40) in my E34 and the later M62B44/M62TUB44 engines used on the E38 and E39? What, if any, components can be easily sourced from the latter, and what components will definitely not be a match on my 4.0?

Cheers!

There are many parts that can be swapped between the two.
Go to realoem.com and cross check the part numbers, it will tell you where they interchange.

Thanks for the link, I'll be taking a look through their database pretty closely later today. At the moment, I'm specifically interested in the MAF sensors, O2 sensors, and ICV (from a '99 740i, to a '95 540iA).

MAF yes, i have used them.
O2 No, just buy new, a good upgrade is the 15729 O2 sensor, universal, but works great and so much cheaper.
ICV yes, and from many others including many 6cylinders
