Running a Tesla sport ldu. Two Chevy volt packs or 12 of these?
I'll bet there was supposed to be a link to go with "these". Since the other alternative is a multiple of a hybrid battery, and the quantity is 12, I'm going to take a wild guess at the 16S1P ~60 V ~2.6 kWh LG Chem modules intended for the Chrysler Pacifica.

You're apparently having difficulty posting a link, so here's one:
Battery EVO Solar Battery Golf Cart EV Car 16 Cells 3 kWh each 64 volts
The seller doesn't know anything, and so posts a nonsense voltage: these will be ~60 volts nominally. The 64 volt value is fully charged; that's not how batteries are identified and can't be multiplied by charge capacity to calculate energy storage capacity. The energy claim is wrong, too - even 45 Ah @ 64 V would be short of 3 kWh; they likely are about 45 Ah nominally, but at 60.8 V that's 2.7 kWh nominal, and less usable.

Yes I think these are the Pacifica batteries
It looks like they are Pacifica modules.

Yes those are the ones. So what are y’all’s thoughts? two volt packs and the extra weight or 12 eBay specials?

800 amps at 400V, so 6s2p? 800 amps...
EV West claims 200-400 amp continuous and 800 amp maximum discharge per module or serial string... but of course LG Chem wouldn't endorse that and the Pacifica won't get close to even 400 amps. EV West recommends two to three strings of 6 modules in series each. snowdog used this configuration (with two strings, 12 modules) in his build.

I thought these battery modules were discontinued. Are you sure that you can find them?
I don't think that their production is discontinued, but the supply to distributors such as EV West has been cut off... which may be effectively the same thing. The entire Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid battery pack (six modules with cooling plates and various electrical devices in a housing) could be purchased from a Chrysler dealer, but that's about $10K USD.
