I think Captain Marvel is stronger. Black Adam just doesn't hold back.

Black Adam has been stated to be the most powerful meta-human of all when it comes to raw superstrength.

i always figured adam was just meant to be a bad cap, like sinestro is to green lantern or reverse flash was at first, i kno the characters have evoled past their initial intentions but i always thought they were supposed to be equals

I think that Black Adam is more powerful then Cap Marvel. I am only basing this on the fact that all of Adams powers come from gods, whereas many of Cap Marvels come from demi gods. For example Cap Marvels strength comes from Hercules, Herc wasnt a god- he is the son of a god. He gets his wisdom from Solomon, who was a king not a god and his courage comes from Achilles who was also not a god. All of Adams patrons were Gods.

The individual identities of the magic word have always struck me as more metaphorical than literal.  The real power comes from the Wizard and the Rock of Eternity.

Black Adam has more power because he doesn't share it like Captain Marvel does. Or at least, that's part of it. So while Captain Marvel is lending power to Mary Marvel, Freddy Freeman, etc, Black Adam has it all to himself.

Adam and Cap are equals in my eyes. the only difference is that Adam doesn't restrain the usage of his power and Cap holds back

Black Adam is stronger everyone knows being slightly crazy or full on crazy adds load to your power. Why do you think Prime is such a beast cuz he is basically crazy

Technically their power's come from the same source SHAZAM so they are technically equals in terms of power. In Black Adam's case he is less likely to pull his punches in a fight or to share his power (Osiris is the only exception to this rule). Captain Marvel has shared his power with numerous people (Mary, Freddy, and the Lieutenant Marvels) and he is very well known for pulling his punches. 
 
Point Blank the only reason Black outclasses Captain Marvel (whether as Billy or Freddy) is selfless kid, and Black adam is a greedy murdrer (he even killed Billy and Mary's parents for some jewelry in a an egyptian tomb). Essentially it is the person behind the powers not the other way around.

No black Adam is stronger, granted not by alot, but this is due to him almost always being Black Adam, over time some of the power stored itself within his cells, this gets released when he turns human and then back into black adam.  
Second, he almost never divides his power with others  
Third. he does not pull his punches  
FOUR the most Important one of all  
He does not draw powers from Shazam due to the demoness Blaze making a deal with the Egyptian god Set.    This allows him to truly tap into the Old gods power
