Heiken Ashi Chart Confusion

Hi all,
I have a small doubt.
Whenever we change Chart type to Heiken Ashi, the values of all Indicators changes completely. For instance the value of a particularity day in daily chart on any indicator will be different for candlestick chart than Heiken Ashi chart.
The Doubt is
The Indicators like MACD or SuperTrend ,etc, during their calculation using OHLC, Do they use Heiken Ashi's OHLC if on Heiken Ashi or does they take normal OHLC?

I was writing SuperTrend and Heiken Ashi Combination in python using Pandas.
Should I use Heiken Ashi's OHLC to write SuperTrend Strategy or with normal?

I don't think it will make much difference. You might see a slight difference but at the end of the day, when price moves in a direction they will both give a signal. My suggestion is to not fuss over the tiny detail like this and spend that effort on important things like finding gaps in your methodology.
