Looks OK but you should mount it sidewise to reduce the distance between nozzle and X/Z plane. PTFE tube at the input and output going close to the hobbed gear will reduce friction and help when threading in new filament.

Also this thing is configurable with any Nema 17 bracket
This is what I currently use and it works great (+-.0015"), I may soon end up making a centering bracket however because of positioning

implemented a version with the ptfe tube. Using a 15.6oz. Nema 17 should reduce that X/Y distance
