Vuong's test is likelihood based and corrects for the differing number of parameters in two models. For your problem you can directly compared adjusted R-squares, which also correct for the number of parameters.. However assessing a difference between two adjusted R-squares is equivalent to assessing a difference between the mean square errors. So I suggest you bootstrap a difference in log mean square errors. Because you want to bootstrap two regressions, you'll need to write your own program.

In the literature, the Vuong test is frequently been used to test differences in R-square (Vuong, Q. H: Likelihood Ratio Tests for Model Selection and Non-nested Hypothesis, Econometrica, Vol 57, No 2, 1989, pp 307-333).
