Any reason the -uninstall command would not show any results and just present another command line?

Can no longer seem to get things reverted back to stock with the script.
Been trying to do some troubleshooting with my Node.

Is there a list of files to manual remove / revert?

@ang You're likely to only see the Core work on random occasions. You're right, you are close.  But the problem seems to be the older TI82 USB-C controller and the power distribution that interfaces with the Mac, as pointed out by @goalque.  That chip is responsible for communications over the bus as well as establishing the power connections for charging through the port and apparently Mac drivers, at least with Sierra, are not terribly compatible.  I was in the same place as you with the same Nvidia Chip Model.  Sometimes after boot it would recognize my 1080 Ti, usually it wouldn't.  I bought an Akitio Node, which has the newer TI83 controller, and it literally worked right out of the box.  And on every boot since. You may get it to work, but it won't be reliable. You'll also deal with a fair number of panic reports.  Hope that helps.

Thanks. I was really hoping to get the core to work, as it is the closest to a docking station too. Charge, USB and network port, on top of a gpu, thats the dream. I guess I will just have to wait till the mantiz releases 🙁

Got my eye on the Venus myself. I missed out on the 100-unit pre-sale here.  At $300 with the group buy, had to be the best deal going.
