It would be a single engine diesel, ACTion do a 'noise thing' which could provide sound, and there are also the Robbe sound units if you are on a tighter budget and don;t mind a synthesized sound.

One of our club members has designed just what you need in the way of a sound unit.

It is marketed by Technobots

http://www.technobotsonline.com/diesel-engine-sound-simulator.html

It is simple to fit, very realistic and whats more its cheap.

Several of our club members have it fitted.

Definitely worth a look.
