Reading that :

Suddenly I have the question in the title in mind Smile
maybe there is hack possible to get HighSierra compatible Macintosh with an eGPU able to run Mojave.

I installed Mojave on an external SSD, I am giving a try tonight:)

Edit : nope, the computer does not want to start, we can select the bootable external drive but then the forbidden sign : 🚫 

MBP 2018, Touch Bar, i7 2.6 GHz, 32 GB RAM, 1T SSD, Radeon 560X... very nice!
eGPU : Akitio Node + RX 580 + GTX 980 Ti + Vega64

Adding your Mac hardware ID to the PlatformSupport.plist would probably work. Find your board-id with this in Terminal:

ioreg -lp IOService | grep board-id

Thanx for the tip, I just tried now, And nope, no forbidden sign, but stay a long time frozen and finish to shut off.

Cheers
