Recently installed a ProAlloy Intercooler on my Exige S w/side air intakes and engine temp is now
averaging a bit hotter than before. Was running 186-190 pre install now running 190-195 depending
on traffic. My guess is the reduced air flow thru side intakes. During install changed coolant hoses,
thermostat, water pump, belt and tensioner, new Inugel coolant and bled system, lengthy process.
Anyone else had this situation?

I would be surprised if the ducts being partially blocked by the pro alloy scoops caused the engine to heat up 10degs. Is the thermostat temp/model the same as before?

I would be more likely to guess the thermostat change

I will say I did a BOE tune with new intercooler and my car runs around 4 degrees warmer, but who knows......

Yeah I’d agree with above posters. I installed that intercooler with side ducts and had no change in temps. When I made changes to my cooling system, temps varied up a bit.
