Looks good to me. And if it is a 51269, the beta puts it at 95% at 17um. Not too shabby. As for the extraneous bypass comment, I'd speculate with some certainty topic filter efficiency significantly better than the oem preference of source.
OP, thanks for pics. I think that filter could have easily gone double that distance, and my personal feeling is the K&N you used is an equivalent at the very best, likely not as good as the WIX most likely. But it will work fine!
