Writing/Extending a game engine?

Some years ago I extended a small engine with some water effects (normal mapping and reflection) using openGL and Cg shaders.

Development on this engine has more or less stopped so I was hoping to find another opensource project/framework where I can add my own shaders and geometries (eg. simulating water using displacement mapping on the GPU).

I have also considered writing my own engine from scratch but maybe there are a better place to start or get help getting started?

I does not necessarily have to be Cg shaders but I would like to continue working with openGL.

Any suggestions?

What are your suggestions when it comes to:

1) HLSL with DirectX
2) CUDA Toolkit 3.2 with openGL
3) GLSL with OpenGL

How about Ogre3d? Its not directly opengl (but can use it indirectly). You can write shaders for it using cg or GLSL (or a few others).
