Default Nitrous Help (plate kit)

I recently bought a NOS sniper kit from a guy an and bought a plate for my carb setup. This is my first time dealing with nitrous so I have a few questions an some might be stupid but oh well

1) when the nitrous system is activated..nitrous an fuel flow through each solenoid..fuel solenoid and nitrous solenoid..but does fuel still get pumped in throw the squirters in the carb bowl? Or does the plate replace the function of the carb? Cuz I would like to make some passes on an off the bottle...so if ne one can give me some knowledge it's def appreciated

This is question is at the very heart of understanding how nitrous works. It is good question but is very basic so let me strongly recommend you continue researching and educating yourself about nitrous. There is a sticky at the top of this section you should have read and google of course will return many pages on the topic.
Now, the nitrous system is added on to your engine as a power adder it does not replace anything. Simply put nitrous is an oxidizer NOT a fuel (i.e. it isn't nitro-methane). It allows you to add & burn additional air/fuel in your engine on top of the base charge. You must add the correct amount of additional fuel (the system is calibrated for it, must have all working right including bottle pressure) or engine damage will ensue quickly.

I would split the main feed into two separate regulated feeds - 1 to feed the carb and 1 for the nitrous. That way you can tune the two pressures independently. You'll need to ensure your fuel pump and main line is up to flowing the amount of fuel volume your going to be demanding of it. I would be sure to add a FPSS (fuel pressure safety switch) for a carb system in the nitrous feed line as well.

So once I split the lines I should put the line going to the fuel solenoid a regulator on it as well? And is there connectors to split the lines like that..I'm sure there are..

That's what I'm recommending. With a small shot it may be overkill but I would say 100 and up you will be set. You just need a Y-block, there are different types depending on your set up.

And can I just hook the y block from the main line directly to my regulator that I already have?

Yes, yes, yes and not an efficient set up. A quick google search turned up a good MM&FF article on carb system install.
