I'd just buy clic-r pliers .. less chance of over-tightening and cracking the pipes ..

I had a thought about that... I replaced the clip after the MAF with a jubilee clip. What are the chances of over tightening this and introduced an air leak?

I agree, worm drive clips (Jubilee) do not distribute clamping forces equally, so on plastic there is a chance of over-tightening resulting in leaks.

On metal, such as coolant pipework they work fine providing they are the right size and have smooth rounded edges, although there are better (more expensive) clips available. Try googling "Band-it".
