Switching to mulching blades..

Last year I switched from mulching to bagging, and I'm going to continue bagging this year. I recently bought an impact wrench of my own, so i'll be able to change off the blades myself instead of taking the mower to a shop and having them do it. My question is, if I wanted to switch back to mulching, would I be able to do so without putting the rest of the mulching kit back on? Is the rest of it necessary for it to work properly?

What kind of mulching blades are they, gator mulching blades, or blades from a mulching kit?
With the gators, you could switch from mulcching to bagging, and not use the kit.
If they come with a mulching kit, then it would be best to use the mulching kit because the blades do not have enough lift without the kit. One mulching kit I am speaking of is the eXmark mulch kit.
What kind of mower do you have??
