The bypass setting is how much the filter will allow itself to restrict the flow of oil before it bypasses the filter. It might happen on a cold start up or on a very old used filter.

Using a filter with a lower bypass pressure than oem wont necesssarily hurt anything, but you probably wont be filtering oil as much of the time.
