In short, all Nusach HoAri synagogues in America were Lubavitcher

See my circa 1991 article in "Avotaynu" entiteled "Chabad-Lubavitch
Literature as a Genealogical Source."
While it is true that Lubavitcher Chasidim use the "Nusach Hoari", it is
not true that all Nusach Hoari synagogues were Lubavitcher. We have a
Nusach Hoari synagogue here in Montreal that did not start out as a
Lubavitcher synagogue at all.
