One issue is whether you want your estimators to be based on central
moments (covariances) or on non-central moments. Removing the intercept
changes the statistics from central to non-central moments. The
adjusted R2, by which I think you mean Fisher's adjusted R2, is based on
central moments (ratio of unbiased estimators of variances---central
moments). So if you remove the intercept, you must re-derive the
adjusted R2 for non-central moments --- you can't just plug in the
number of independent variables as zero.

I apologize for my many emails but I think I know how to desctribe my
problem differently and more clearly.
My question is how to compare linear models with intercept and those
without intercept using maximizing adjusted R^2 strategy.
Now I do it like the following:
> ##### Choose the model with maximum adjr2
1 2 3 4
TRUE TRUE TRUE FALSE
Actually, I use the definition of R-square in which the model is without
a intercept term.
Is what I am doing is correct?
Thanks for any suggestion or correction.
