Hustler Sport 42 mulch kit/gator blades, other questions

I purchased a 42 Hustler Sport about a month ago and have been really pleased with it so far. The ride is great. The cut has been decent. I am currently side discharging but am thinking of either getting the mulching kit or getting some gator blades to improve the cut. Do you have the part number for the mulching kit and the gator blades. I know there are different types of kits. My model number is 930206 amd serial number is 11030359. What would you recommend to improve the cut?

Also, I am about to hit the 4-5hour mark. The hustler manual says to change oil at 4 hours, the kawasaki at 8. The hustler says replace the oil filter. The kawasaki says don't until the next oil change. Any thoughts? Also, can I switch to synthetic with this first change?

Thanks

Your 42" Sport uses the following kit, and the wavy mulching blades are included.
Kit, Mulch 42" (blades included) Hustler part # 112609 MSRP $99.00
The Gator blades if you wish to use them are Hustler part # 794230
I would change the oil and filter at the 5 hour mark.
I wouldn't switch to synthetic yet, the engine hasn't broken in yet, I would wait until the 50 hour mark personally.
