Could be the motor mounts.
Open the hood, with the emergency brake set, and your left foot FIRMLY on the brake pedal, put the car in gear, and give it gas while holding the brake.
Watch the motor, see if one side lifts up. If the grinding noise is only on acceleration, if the mount is broken free, the motor will sit fine at idle but under pressure, will lift up.
If this is the case, you can replace the mount in question or both.
