Three car engines, worth a combined total of $160,000, have been stolen in a shock ram raid on a business in Melbourne’s outer west.

Just before 5am on Thursday, three men drove three separate cars to a car repair shop on Barretta Rd in Ravenhall.

One of the vehicles, a stolen Nissan Navara, was used to plough through the shop’s metal shutter door, after which the three men hastily entered the premises.
