Default new Mac Pro, Pro Tools 9 and 002r


I have a 002r with Signature Series modification which serves my purposes perfectly as interface. I am looking to upgrade to a new Mac Pro 8 Core computer as well as go from pro tools 7.4 to 9. In talking to an AVID rep last week he maintained that the firewire connection with the 002r will severely limit the improvement in the number of plug-ins I can use while recording/mixing which a new computer should provide me. My question to those who have upgraded their computer recently with 002r: have you noticed a significant increase in capability even with the 002r and pro tools 9? Secondly, do people see any future modifications with for example Thunderbolt which may help 002 users take more advantage of the faster computers available?

Thanks for your response, or link to discussion where this topic may have been discussed.
