That kit won't work on your carburetor. There's no such thing as a dry shot on a carburetor, because on a dry shot, the injectors work harder to compensate for the oxidizing effect of the nitrous. Any time you add oxygen (nitrous), you have to add fuel, and the injectors do it automatically.
So carburetors use a plate kit, which sprays nitrous and fuel, so the kit, which I assume is a nozzle kit, simply won't even hook up to your carb'd engine.
On the comment of just jetting it down to a 50 shot, if the kit isn't designed to go that low, it's very unsafe to jet it that low. Kits are designed for a specific range (like mine is 100-300), so the spray bar and solenoids flow X pph nitrous/fuel, and when you try to choke it down too low, it can cause very uneven dispursement among the cylinders.
You can spray on cast pistons, especially a small shot like you're talking. But it's all relative to the tuneup. Nitrous does not hurt an engine, detonation hurts an engine, and nitrous will magnify that. You could spray a lot of nitrous on a cast piston, if the tuneup is good and it doesn't detonate. Get the tuneup off a bit, and get detonation, the ring lands lift, the piston melts, and its ugly. Forged pistons just provide some room for error.
