Default PLX organic LED OBD-II gauge wiring

I'm looking at getting a couple of organic HI-DEF LED gauges for my 06 STI from PLX Devices. Each gauge can read and display anything on your OBD-II as well as other sensors you wire into it (EGT,wideband AFR, ECT) you cycle thru what you want displayed on the screen with a little remote, pretty cool. I wanna put 2 52mm gauges in the autometer insturment cluster pod. The only thing I dont like is that it has to be plugged into the OBD-II port at all times to display AIT and all that, and that port is between my legs on the dash. I've plugged in my Acess port down there and tried using that and the knees on my long legs hit that when it's plugged in.
A local shop can wire the gauges controll box to my OBD-II but will that cause scan tools and my acessport to get missreadings and not function properly when hooked up? Ya know because the gauges are going to be permanently wired into the back side of the plug. Or am I gonig to be OK.

Unclip the factory plug from its hole in the dash, and plug in the gauges the normal way.
Then ziptie the plugs somewhere out of the way.
