Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't notice the larger opening in my older picture and didn't look at more than the thumbnails of the other pics. I think its a H-395 Nose Cowl the H-295 has the landing lights, it also appears to have small cowl flaps on each side of the exhaust inductor can't say as I've ever noticed this particular combination before.

This is the original cowling for the 391B, except for the larger opening below the air intake, which would make the PS5D-6 operate at better efficiency..And for oil cooler and ejector tube..
