If one is praying a nusach which is different to the nusach that the shul is using, is it wrong to answer according to your own nusach?

    The only parts of Kedusha that the congregation needs to say are ubiquitous among all Nuschaot. (OC 125)

  • The scope of Kedusha is that everybody says the same thing together. If you say somewhat else, you are not with the Tsibur.

  • @kouty You'd still be answering with the tzibur just saying something slightly different.

There may be other practices out there, and it's confusing to learn the responses of another nusach, but Rav Moshe Feinstein's position was that anything communal and out-loud -- including the kedusha response -- should follow the kehilla's nusach.
