Nitrous with carb

Maybe, if you are using a "wet" kit.
You will have to see what it does to your fuel pressure when you activate the nitrous.
The best bet is to go to the manufacturer's website and follow their directions for installation and fuel supply.

Yes it's a wet kit. What pressure should I be at with a carb 9psi?

Probably between 5-8 psi.
If I remember correctly, going any higher will require special needles and seats to hold the pressure.
If your pressure does not fall way off when you activate the nitrous/fuel solenoids, then you are probably ok with it set where it is at.

I bet an easier fix for supplying enough fuel to the nitrous system fuel solenoid might be to just use a separate pump & regulator?
I don't think you would need an expensive pump, one of the over the counter electric fuel pumps would probably work.
