Work your left and right side independently: dumbbells, one legged calf raises, etc.

even then i do not get the pump, in my left pec. i try and do extra exercises just to get the feeling that its getting stimulated,
with my calf its not that the development isnt there,.. when i flex my right foot i can contract the muscle, i physically cannot do it that way all with my left, however i can point my toe and feel it contract.
my chest makes me self consious i cannot physically look at myself in the mirror, it makes me sick because i work hard, and i feel like it doesnt show

I have one trap way bigger than the other, i pre exhaust it before i do barbell shrugs by doing single arm db shrugs, works, but slowly. hard to change genetics.

but the fact that i cannot manually contract the muscle, even when thinking about it is a concern for me,
also genetics has delt me a very very ****ty hand with chest and shoulder development. they just dont grow. DC training, didnt work, traditional training didnt work. bench with elbows going only to 90 degrees and up didnt work, then i retrained my self to go all the way down, that hasnt worked. lower mid pecs do not close, they are seperated by like 3 inches , or thats what it looks like (kinda like matt hughes from UFC)
and i dont feel flys AT ALL, i did them with the cables today, NOTHING.

It sounds like to me that a lot of this is psychological. Im sure the imbalances are there but you are simply dwelling on them to much. I have numerous imbalances also bigger/stronger left peck and bicep even though I am right handed. Bigger/stronger right tricep and shoulder. It used to bother me a lot too, you just need to stop worrying so much about it. Extra single dumbell work can help some but it won't totally fix the issues. The issues probably lay in the dominant side being stronger, your lifting form, or a possible injury in the past that stunted certain parts strength and size.

I had a friend who had a stange split in his chest, look at Franco Columbu, he did a bunch of juice and ate cheeseburgers and it just filled out, not saying at all this is what to do, just a silly anecdote I guess.
