Gearbox mount metal insert?

I recently fitted a new gearbox mount to the car, it was a Febi replacement as I was told the Group N stuff I was looking at would have been a little harsh for a daily driver.

Is the mount not supposed to have a metal insert up the middle of it? When I tighten the mount up to the torque spec its really, really squashed looking.

Same as the middle one on the Baker BM site only I don't have the alloy/steel insert.

the o.e types are just a steel tube.

part number is 1841 16, but they are marked NFP so you might struggle to get a new one, from memory its a straight piece of 12mm i.d tube but not sure on the length, easy to find in a breakers yard though, used on all 106/saxo's afaik.
