Dont worry about it, the computer will cope. You would be very luck if the pod got any extra air into the engine.

the computers arn't tuneable without resorting to an add in chip type thing, but that's not a tune that's an addon...
if he owns an XB then he's probably not overly familiar with electronically controlled vehicles and fuel injection, it's a different ball game all together, if you had done it to an old carby fed thing like an XB, sure a tune would be a good idea!

it will cope but your better off putting the pod into your Air intake Box so its not just sucking hot air out of the engine bay. box it and you will be getting cold air
