I am using the s13 brackets, because they came with the engine, so i never even checked if my fj brackets would fit (i just asumed they wouldn't).
Now the thing is that the s13 mounts dont just bolt to the subframe (thats the thing that i was refering to as "travers" ). Seems that i would need to drill a little hole in the subframe, for the little thing that aligns the mount (its closer to the bolt then on the fj mount).
If the left and right mounts are different in this aspect i might have to of the same side. Ill look into this today, maybe make some pic's to make it all clear.

Just rotate the mount 90 deg's, the dimple is supposed to sit in the same slot that the bolt goes into. I would also recommend not tightening them up until you got the engine in place as you get a degree of flexibility from where they can move up and down in the slot

Allright, ill see what can be done, when i get back home.
Thou i would have a prob with tightening the mount, once the subframe is back in the car. Basicly theres no room to reach that bolt, i guess i would need some sort of a smart wrench, that i dont have

Yeah you need to smash the spanner up a bit with a hammer.

This image shows visually how the dimple should sit
