If they stick with the EJ, it will be because the FB doesn't fit as a drop in replacement and they don't want to retool the engine bay for a car that is getting replaced in ~2 years with an all new model. Also FB CVT may be a fitment issue.

I don't mind the EJ, aside from the fact that is uses a timing belt which makes for a costly replacement every 75K miles Real world MPG between the EJ and the DB doesn't seem to differ by much.
