Technical question concerning the 6.0 B12 engine

I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to any of the following questions:

1. Are the heads based off of a the M70 or M73? I am pretty sure the block is M73.

2. Are the cams OE/stock or Alpina specific?

3. If they are Alpina specific, what is the degree and lift?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
