How reliable are bluetooth OBDII modules?

I bought the Kiwi3 bluetooth OBDII module and have been using it with the Torque app for about a week. Today after I did my trans fluid change I took it for a spin to get all the gears lubed up and when I got home I looked at my Torque app to close it and noticed this max horsepower reading. There's no way that can be accurate, can it? A 2011 automatic hatch 1.8 and the only performace mod is my WPN-R intake? says 122hp @ 5200rpm thats not a small margin of error.

Horsepower calculated indirectly like that is worthless. No engine that small makes that kind of power without a lot more being done to it unless a motorcycle one, that's 100hp./liter there.

In my world we would call that 'lemming fodder'.
