I have a 55x with auto trim and alt preselected in the Toga. It is a great IFR platform. Had the 55x in what is now Tavis' TBone. Loved it in the TBone. In my H50 I just upgraded from a 50 with GPSS to a 55x to get altitude preselect via the G600 and Glideslope / LPV capture.

Looking at Sarasota website, I see new Stec models, 3100 and 5000 so they are taking Garmin's threat seriously.

Their 55x cost is only 3K more than the 30/50. At that price I'd go for the 55x, particularly with a glass panel.

It would be nice if the 3100 could use already installed STEC servos for an incrementally lower price.

According to the S-Tec folks I talked to at NBAA it can use the existing servos.

Will it be certified for the T-bone?

I don’t know Adam. You would need to contact Genesys and see if there have any plans for it in the future.
