-8 to the bowls is fine, really -6 is fine. The flow through a single .150 needle and seat is much smaller than the -6 line itself.
I agree with all of this. 10 doesn't cost much more than 8, but 8 would work on a street car. I ran #10 to the regulator and 8's to the carb though 6's will work there as well due to the small flow. My car made almost 1000 hp on that setup as well.
