How do you know WS-18 is low by pass? It looks like DKP30 engine, doesnt mean it performs like it. With new metallurgy, WS-18 spec is definitely better than old Russian engine. Plus, PLAAF seems very satisfy for WS-18 that they continue using this engine with very slow induction phase of WS-20.
As it seems, all operational Y-20s so far are using original D-30KP-2 engines
