WS-20 is just the fat high-bypass brother of the WS-10 engine family which powers everything from J-10C to J-16 to J-20!

WS-18/DK-30 is more suitable for H-6 bombers than Y-20 because it is lower bypass (faster speed, high fuel consumption) with a slimmer profile:

So Y-20A is currently not fuel efficient with less power than Y-20B.

So once WS-20 is in full production, Y-20 will drop WS-18 for H-6 production and everyone will finally use their right engines!

Any plans for developing a Awacs or air refueller based on Y-20?

AWACS in development:

Plans to expand the PLAAF’s KJ-2000 fleet were hindered by the lack of available Il-76 airframes, but the issue is being overcome now that Xian Aircraft Industrial Corporation is producing the Y-20 airframe. The final AWACS product could be the rumored KJ-3000, with enhanced ASEA radar developed by the 14th Institute, mounted as a conformal radar system for all-around coverage.
