Easiest ThinkPads to Hackintosh

Hi all, I've been looking into Hackintoshing one of my ThinkPads and am wondering two things:
-What is the easiest ThinkPad to Hackintosh period (with any version, so if an older version of OS X is easier than newer that is acceptable)?
-What is the easiest ThinkPad to Hackintosh with Mojave?

I've noticed for some ThinkPads you have to remove the BIOS whitelist on the wireless card, or flash the BIOS chip directly, so I'm curious to see which model(s) are the most functional with OS X with the least amount of modding/hacking.

Probably the 20, 30, and T440p machines. Which is the easiest is probably a toss up. I believe all 3 can support Mojave.

Sadly the X220 +T420 iGPU + T520 iGPU machines do not support Mojave easily as the graphics card is not supported. However, with some modifications, it may work.

I run Mojave on T420, T430 and X220

I used the "patcher" tool from DOSDude.

I'd have to say my T450s was the easiest hackintosh for me, mainly cuz i used premade EFI's then modified them to better fit what I needed. Here is the EFI:

incase you or anyone else gets a t450/t450s or 2015 x1 carbon
