Sounds like it is a little tight on the adjustment. Are you using the dog bone or a bolt and nuts? Also, reverse does not have a syncro so hit 4th or 5th and then reverse. I might be wrong and I am sure I will hear about it if I am.

Sounds like the clutch is not disengaging. I wonder if the cable is stretching? Might want to have someone watch the clutch fork under the car when the clutch pedal is pressed.

What was it like before the new clutch? You may have transmission problems like bent forks or bad syncros.
Just as a note, a T5 will never have a bent fork. The are either fine or just flat-out break.
