Nusach Tefilla in Shul with Different Custom

Question:
I am Ashkenazi and have grown up davening nusach ashkenaz. The only shul within walking distance of me is a Chabad house that davens nusach ari. How should I approach davening when there – what can I daven in my own nusach and what needs to be in the nusach of the shul? In particular, with regard to the order of things, for example where “hodu” is said (i.e. before or after “baruch she’amar”) do I need to change the order to fit with the rest of the shul?

Answer:

You can daven the entire tefilla in your nusach, including the order of psukei dzimra. It should be done in a way that is not obvious, meaning you should not daven loudly or draw attention. If you serve as the shaliach tzibbur, you would be required to daven in the nusach of the shul.
