  • And what is the situation you're talking about? Could you provide us with the context?

  • I see no reason to use would here. Generally, "one makes sure x is y". If you are making sure of something, how could "would" apply?

I have seldom come across the phrase make sure taking any other form of a verb. It has been always the base verb.

Make sure that it's perfect.
Make sure that he attends the class.
and so on...

If you are in the action stage of making it, you would want to make it perfect. If you are in the planning stages of making it, you would want to make sure it would be perfect.
