Finally got it to work by first uninstalling the Cuda drivers prior to installing the Nvidia drivers and NVDAEGPUSupport-v2.

@Username Nice tip about logging in without an external screen connected

2015 15" MacBook Pro (R9 M370X) [4th,4C,H] + GTX 980 Ti @ 16Gbps-TB2>TB3 (AKiTiO Node) + macOS 10.12.4 & Win10 [build link]

I've had success getting my eGPU up and running. 

2016 Macbook Pro 15", High Sierra (10.13.1)
MZ-02 with GTX 1080 Ti
WebDriver 378.10.10.10.20.107
Used package V2

I completely disabled csrutil after I installed the WebDriver. At first boot at the login screen is where I attach my eGPU, I don't do the login then logout dance. Everything works great!

PS -- While skimming this huge thread I noticed some people saying their graphics card is only being identified as a generic Nvidia Chip Model. That was my case, too, but after I logged out then back in the card was correctly identified and everything went smooth.

Lovely looking set [email protected]lukicharms ! Those Mantiz enclosures look great...

My headless 4k plug arrived yesterday and I did some testing... all very very disappointing after initial excitement.

I had to boot with eGPU connected and then plug the headless adapter in once logged in for things to get anywhere near working. My internal and the adapter were being driven by my 1070 but my LG 5K display was still on my iris. I tried playing Rocket League on my internal which claimed to be running on the 1070 but I was only getting about 30fps compared to 130fps in windows so something isn't right.

I'm prob going to uninstall and wait to see what official options Apple bring to the table...

Exact same setup as Andy ^^. Contrary to his experience, I cannot get this to work following exactly the same instructions. The egpu is detected as an NVIDIA chipset, however OSX will 1) hang on boot if plugged in, 2) hang on logout if plugged in once logged in, 3) hang on login if plugged in during the login screen.

I have a '16 15" tbmbp w/ touchbar and maxed out specs, mantiz venus and evga 1080 TI w/ 2 4k displays. Tried HDMI, displayport, and w/o monitor. Would love to know what the difference is in our setups.

30 FPS in MacOS Rocket league sounds about right. Unfortunately MacOS isn't optimized like windows to play games.

if you skip to around 3:35 you'll see he's getting the same results
