Thinkpad T430 eGPU and dock use

I have a T430 that I'm currently using as a desktop replacement, it sits and fits nicely in a dock (not a port replicator). Will I be able to use a mpcie or EC eGPU solution while docked? Or will I have to get it out of the dock to use an eGPU?


Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

The Lenovo mechanical docks do little, you can very well imagine them as passive devices, certainly nothing that would show up towards the system as a new device. They shouldn't interfere with anything, except physically perhaps, it'd be harder to get a cable out of the mPCIe slot unless you cut the side of the thing. ExpressCard should be a-OK.
