With just an intake I didn't notice much change in shifting, but I did notice a big change in engine sound when (what I assume to be) the torque convertor unlocked while going uphill.

After I added custom exhaust I would agree with less downshifting and also the torque convertor doesn't seem to need to unlock as much.
