Dont know why exactly it is grinding but are you going up into 5th gear before you go into reverse. If not, try that. Seems to help with mine. I think it has something to do with reverse not being a syncronised gear. Dont quote me on that though :)

Reverse is not synchronized. Its supposed to grind. A synchro matches speeds of the shafts being meshed together. 1st and reverse are the closest ratios. So putting it in 1st will get the speeds closest.

My T5 works best going into 5th then Reverse.

It ALWAYS grinds if I forget to do it for some stupid reason.

I second the 1st to reverse swing. I have a Tremec 3550 and I'll get some grindage if I go right to reverse without first shifting into 1st gear. It does have to do with reverse being a non-synchronized gear. Reverse is also a straight cut gear which makes it even more prone to being noisy.
