I’m interested in this answer as well but will offer what I’ve done so far.

In your example, the only thing I’ve added are these three lines in the 
location block:
proxy_cache_valid 200 1y;
proxy_cache_bypass 1;
proxy_no_cache 1;

But I am not sure I am doing this correctly because I am running into a 
situation where I don’t think the original request is staying intact.

Other settings that are common to both cache and bypass (also not sure these 
are all correct for bypassing):

proxy_cache_valid any 3m;
proxy_cache_revalidate on;
proxy_cache_use_stale error timeout updating invalid_header http_500 http_502 
http_503 http_504;
proxy_cache_background_update on;
proxy_cache_lock on;
proxy_cache_methods GET HEAD;
proxy_cache_key "$scheme$host$request_uri";

proxy_ignore_headers X-Accel-Expires Expires Cache-Control Set-Cookie;

proxy_hide_header X-Accel-Expires;
proxy_hide_header Expires;
proxy_hide_header Cache-Control;
proxy_hide_header Set-Cookie;
proxy_hide_header Pragma;
proxy_hide_header Server;
proxy_hide_header Request-Context;
proxy_hide_header X-Powered-By;
proxy_hide_header X-AspNet-Version;
proxy_hide_header X-AspNetMvc-Version;

proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $hostname;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_set_header Accept-Encoding identity;

server_tokens off;

Subject: N00b: Forwarding the full request to upstream server

I have a situation where I receive a request like:
I want this to be sent to a server upstream but keep the full request intact. 
For example:

server {
                listen 80;

        location / {
                        // send this too
                        proxy_pass $host:$server_port$uri$is_args$args;
I know this is probably easy to do but I am not sure how to accomplish this.
