So far my 9 sp holds 9 gear just fine, not much down shifting. Im still learning the shifting strategy of this car, it seems that it changes a lot while it warms up. Once it warms up it is predictable.

Sounds similar to the Gen1 Diesel. In theory, an auto with more gears will shift more and tend to down shift on hills more often than an auto with fewer gears. So long as the RPMs are high enough and the hill is shallow enough to allow the car to make it up the hill with the HP and Torque it has (which the diesel has a fair bit of), then it shouldn't feel the need to downshift.
