flood vs tyranids is sort of a moot point. Both species have the ability to assimilate the other into collective, so any confrontation would result in one gaining the other's abilities. My money is still on the tyranids however. the flood only seem capable of infecting, whereas the tyranids can copy the resultant creature wholesale. Flood infesting a hive Tyrant = 1 flood tyrant. The flood can't make another without infesting another. The tyranids eat a flood spore, and poof they now have the capacity to create tyranid flood spores.

So the end result either way would be more powerful tyranids with the ability to spread and infect like the flood.
