Hello Matey, not an easy quest unless you are in Canada where she is now.  there is not a sound module as far as I know that mimics a 9 cyl two stroke polar engine ,it is a very unique sound,  but there is a 5 cyl polar running regularly at Chatham in kent aboard the tug Kent though, you would need the air start sound as well as running sounds, if you look at you tube there is a video of the M T Kent engine starting and running, basically the only thing we used to hear was the scavenge pump sucking great lungfulls of air and a rather quiet exhaust noise unless she was pulling hard.   Geo
