You can make a kludge such that it will exhibit these
behaviors, but it is harder than just ponying up a few
extra bucks for a real solution.  PBR and the other
klduge-based approaches will "work" but may experience
not-so-well documented conditions.

Just don't do it.

Besides, what do you mean by "to limit investment"?  A
1604 runs BGP and can be had on ebay for a few hundred
dollars.  What exactly works at the speeds you're
describing that doesn't run BGP, and is cheaper than
gear which does?
