Telling a kid with Down Syndrome that he's dumb is just wrong, no matter how true it may be. He already knows it as well as he can, and the rest of the message is just hurtful. Yet Peter's uncle, the not-really-evil-or-mad scientist, Dr. Lux Luther sees something else in him, and has prepared something he hopes will help his nephew feel better about himself.
By the way, diesel engines require compression higher than that of a gasoline internal combustion engine to work. The combustion works without spark plugs. Dr. Diesel's first engine blew up, but he knew that meant the principle worked. All this means that a diesel turbine would just be a mess, as there's no way it could develop the compression needed for a diesel-fuel-and-air mix to combust. Peter wouldn't know this, but he's wise enough to know when he's in over his head.
