well..you dont need to bring it to a tune shop, the only thing I can thing of is that its loose..try shaking it around a little and see if its hitting anything, is it hitting to top of your hood sometimes??...theres no reason a intake should make a bang noise

Yeah, it might be wacking something when the engine torques around. Pull it out and check for marks on it like where it's been contacting another engine part.

My CAI was wacking the fender, so I had to move it around.

I cant believe they told you to get it tuned??!! You might be flowing air better, but its not like the volume took a huge leap. Your ECU will compensate, dont waste you money on a tune.
