Incorrect on the math. It's nominal voltage, not 48V. So if you go with 14s for a "48V" system, the voltage range is approximately 44.8 - 57.4V with a nominal voltage of 51.8V. If each parallel pack/section comes to 103Ah, then 103 * 52 = 5356Wh, or there abouts. At least you calculated lower, better than over calculating and being surprised with crap performance.

1000W / 48 = 21A at full throttle. Surge wattage is probably gonna be closer to 2000W (this is from dead stop and hard acceleration) which means a possible 42A draw from the battery. 52 cells in parallel divided by 42A = 1.23A per cell. This is probably fine for short bursts on reclaimed cells. A bit of a stress on laptop cells, but they probably would handle it. Just don't expect several years worth of life from them. Now, gentle acceleration will be a lot safer/kinder on these cells.
Proceed with caution. Knowledge is Power! Literally! Cool
